Founded in 2021, Classical Music Festivals Canada (CMFC) is a unique collaboration between 11 Canadian arts organizations dedicated to connecting artists, audiences, communities, and professionals from Canada’s rich and diverse classical music sector.
July in January, an online video chamber music festival, was launched in 2021 as CMFC’s first initiative.
In the spirit of reconciliation and co-operation, the Festival of the Sound acknowledges that the Wasauksing ancestral lands upon which we gather are the traditional territories of the Anishinaabeg/Anishinaabek – Ojibway, Odawa and Potawatomi – peoples, ceded and conveyed to the Crown, and formalized through mutual agreement and consent in the Robinson-Huron Treaty, 1850.
We respect all treaty rights and responsibilities, including negotiated outcomes to the current equitable annuities deliberations, and dedicate ourselves to partner with the Indigenous communities in our commitment to transform the promise and challenge of Truth and Reconciliation into reality.
Festival of the Sound wishes to thank our generous sponsors for their support of the July in January initiative:
