The SweetWater Festival, now entering its 12th season, leverages that tax money by supporting our region's cultural and economic vitality.

The SweetWater Music Festival will take place from September 18 to 20, 2015, in Leith

Church and the Historic Leith Church. Some of the best professional musicians, local, national and international, will be providing school visits, master classes and artist talks in our community thanks to this unique festival.

Twenty-five years ago a visionary woman left a bequest to buy a concert grand piano for the musical community of Owen Sound. On Saturday, March 21 at 8:00 p.m. that piano will be re-dedicated at a concert by Angela Park, a classical pianist of international repute.

Ms. Park will perform at the Harmony Centre, at 4th Avenue East and 9th Street. The community-owned teaching and concert space for many of Owen Sound's aspiring and professional musicians is now the permanent home for the grand piano, in the care of the Georgian Bay Symphony.

Formerly Knox United Church, the building has a rich musical heritage. In the 1930s and 40s, Mr. Cyril Moss was the organist. He often held public concerts at the church, encouraging its use for social and entertainment purposes to create and strengthen a sense of community.

The local music community invited Owen Sounders to come together in support of one of their own - Steve Kenney - and his neighbours who lost their homes in a fire February 5.
The Good Neighbours Concert and the generous donors and bidders in a silent auction raised over $10,000 for the 2nd Ave E. families.
