We are thrilled to announce to you today our season line-up for this, our 22nd season of music-making in Stratford!! As you peruse our offerings for July and August you’ll notice that we are continuing to build on what has made Stratford Summer Music a national leader for more than two decades – great music that knows no boundaries! If your ears are hungry to listen to world-class performers at the height of their powers in settings small or large, indoors or outdoors – this season is for you!

Familiar faces such as Janina Fialkowska, Stéphane Tétreault,Stewart Goodyear, OKAN, Shane Cook and the Woodchippers, INNERchamber, Marcus Nance, Emily Hamper, Phillip Addis and more return to bring us more of what we love them for – sharing their artistry and joy of live music-making!
Soon-to-be-favourites including Ladom Ensemble, The Sweet Hots, Thalea Quartet, Socalled, KUNÉ – Canada’s Global Orchestra and Duo Concertante bring a spectrum and depth to our line-up like never before. Special events like our new World in a Weekend (a festival within a festival!) will see us take over the city for four days in August in collaboration with SpringWorks with free music and live interactive events for all.
Our Friday night jazz series at Revival is back with the best musicians from coast to coast (literally from St. John’s to Vancouver!). And a nation-wide team of performers brings us a very special event I’ve been trying to make happen for four years now: Sounding Thunder celebrates the life and legacy of the famous Ojibwe leader, WWI sniper, and early Indigenous political force Francis Pegahmagabow. Mark your calendars for August 4th!!
With over 45 events between July 21st and August 14th, there’s never been a better time to be in Stratford…where all roads lead to music!
