The Collingwood Music Festival brings exceptional performances to Collingwood each summer, featuring award-winning artists in the fields of classical, world, jazz and Indigenous genres.
Running from July 9-15, 2022, you’ll hear the brilliant, symphonic power of the National Academy Orchestra of Canada, followed by a program of popular spirituals with the Nathaniel Dett Chorale and a swingin’ a cappella choir – Countermeasure, which will have you singin’ along and dancing in the aisles. And that’s just the start!
This year, we are also hosting FREE events for youth in nearby Duntroon Highlands Golf Club, with an enchanted, musical pathway coupled with the serenity of nature – all outdoors with charming views of the bay.

The Collingwood Summer Music Festival is proud to join 10 other amazing summer music festivals in a power-packed month of FREE concerts.
Let us introduce you to “July in January” – an online video chamber music festival born out of the desire to connect to audiences outside of the summer festival season, and reach classical music fans in new communities, both in Ontario, and beyond.
July in January launches Friday, January 28th hosted at www.classicalmusicfestivals.ca, and features FREE performances from eleven different festivals. For a deeper dive you can listen to conversations between the Artistic Directors and Eric Friesen, whom audiences know as the voice of classical music in Canada from his many years as host and producer for CBC and NPR public radio. Viewers will be treated to live music from:
· Festival of the Sound · Collingwood Summer Music Festival; Daniel Vnukowski, AD · Prince Edward County Chamber Music Festival · SweetWater Music Festival · Ottawa Chamberfest · Thousand Islands Playhouse Studio “S” Series · Music Niagara Festival · Toronto Summer Music Festival · Stratford Summer Music · Westben · Elora Festival
It’s free, open to anyone, anywhere, with one simple yet powerful idea: the power of great music is limitless.
No registration is required. Concerts will be available until February 28, 2022. Viewers are encouraged to support the participating arts organizations by donating through links on the website.
Take a summer trip across Ontario without leaving the comfort of your home with Classical Music Festivals Canada!
Join us for our first fundraising event of the season! Enjoy delectable, sumptuous finger foods, boutique wine and tranquil surroundings of the 14-acre MacLean property. Soulful music, culinary art and the soothing sounds of nature combined in one. Includes a live, outdoor piano recital with the music of Frederic Chopin on a recently-restored, vintage Steinway grand piano.
In light of the latest restrictions on outdoor gatherings, we have transformed our family day – Sunday, July 11th into something even greater and grander, including a variety of activities that can be enjoyed by families and youth of all ages.
The morning features free musical activities for preschoolers taking place outdoors on the lawn. The afternoon features Collingwood’s very own folk/rock ensemble Shipyard Kitchen Party and the iconic folk singer Jerry Gray, who will lead the drive-in audience in a sing-a-long version of “This Land Is Your Land.” In the evening, we are screening the award-winning documentary “Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked The World.”
[Edit July 1st: Due to a technical issue the afternoon event has been postponed to a later date TBD]
The County of Simcoe has approved partnership funding from the 2021 County of Simcoe Tourism, Culture and Sport Grant in the amount of $10,000.00 for expenses related to live-streaming and projection of 2021 Collingwood Summer Music Festival events.

Thank you to LivingSpaces & LifeStyles Magazine and Windrush Estate Winery for mentioning our memorable performance with Ben Heppner and Daniel Vnukowski earlier this year. It was a remarkable occasion that combined breathtaking scenery with a emotionally-charged plot by Alfred Lord Tennyson.
Posted on Aug 30, 2022 in Food/Recipes, Lifestyles Never a hero in your own country, so goes the old adage!
