CMFC presents: July in January

Let us introduce you to July in January, the first Classical Music Festivals Canada (CMFC) project!

It is 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 January 28, 2022 hosted at, and features free of charge performances from eleven different festival.

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
  • Prince Edward County Music Festival
  • SweetWater Music Festival
  • Ottawa Chamberfest
  • Studio S Concert Series (Thousand Islands Playhouse)Music Niagara Festival
  • Toronto Summer Music
