The Collingwood Music Festival is an annual, family-friendly music festival that brings high-calibre, live music performances to Collingwood. The festival presents over 100 internationally-renowned performing artists each summer in July at the acoustically-sound, multimedia-equipped auditorium of the First Presbyterian Church located in downtown Collingwood, featuring classical, film, world and Indigenous music genres. In 2023, scenic outdoor locations in downtown Collingwood are added to the Festival. The music performances exhibit a fresh, innovative approach to programming and make extensive use of the venue’s multimedia facilities, for a unique, immersive experience. They include intimate, chamber music experiences, vocal and choral concerts, as well as non-classical events in the areas of jazz, film, Indigenous and world music. The Festival also offers free youth events, on the beautiful grounds of Duntroon Highlands.

    A tribute to Maestro Boris Brott

    This year’s video contribution showcases the late Maestro’s former performance at our festival, showing his youthful charisma and unwavering commitment to spreading the joy of classical music. We are also proud to feature Dr. Duke Redbird along with six other superbly talented Indigenous artists, which we hope will help to better understand and appreciate the art of truth and reconciliation.
