Voted one of the Top 100 Festivals in Ontario, Burlington’s Sound of Music Festival is one of the summer’s most sought after shows. Featuring a unique blend of new and emerging artists, Canadian icons of the past, and fan favourites on several stages along our beautiful waterfront and downtown. [1]

The 2007 festival will help celebrate 60th Anniversary of the Burlington Teen Tour Band, Canada's oldest youth marching band. Celebrations, including a homecoming reunion, a concert and participation in the parade, are being planned to mark this anniversary. More information is available at the BTTB Alumni Web page.
