Stratford Summer Music - a great Canadian musical festival
Every summer, musical artists from around the world come to Stratford Summer Music to complement the elegant atmosphere of our town in July and August.
Held every year, Stratford Summer Music offers a wide range of opera, jazz, marching bands, organ recitals, church choirs, innovative musical installations and world music to suit every musical taste. Our heritage churches and concert halls come alive with intimate performances by world-renowned musicians – there really is no other summer festival of its caliber in Ontario.
Past performances have included Ben Heppner and Measha Brueggergosman in recital, the Forty-Part Motet, the hot air balloons of the Sky Orchestra, Korean drummers, Ukulele Orchestras and heavenly choirs from Scotland, England and Wales.
Free concerts on the grassy slopes of the Avon and on river barges are the perfect complement to a picnic on a summer’s day. You'll want to attend the once-in-a-lifetime intimate recitals in churches and, for those night owls, late-night cabarets will keep you swinging.
