Other than the beautiful water and environs, this is Parry Sound's treasure. An incredible, world-class concert hall awaits visitors where you may have least have expected it.

This is a fabulous building and right near the water. Great meeting rooms and banquet facilities. Totally enjoyed our time there.

The “Well Tempered Klavier” is actually a sleek, shining, black Yamaha grand piano that graces the stage on the waterfront at the Charles W. Stockey Centre for the Performing Arts in Parry Sound, with sailboats on the water, seaplanes in the air and a huge CN trestle in the background to accommodate trains. The Centre embodies its Georgian Bay cottage... More

There are performances going on all year round in all genres from country to jazz to opera and chamber music. The big event is the Festival of the Sound, chamber music festival which takes place in July/August. People (and musicians) visit from all over the world and everyone raves about the hall. Evening concerts give you a chance to enjoy... More

Built at great expense and continuously funded by a lot of tax payers' money, the Stockey Centre (or the hockey-stockey centre as locals call it) offers professional musical performances as good as any you'll get in Toronto. It is a main attraction that draws summer crowds to Parry Sound. Open all year long but with limited venue during the off... More

We attended a jazz performance during the Festival of the Sound. We have been to the Centre several times. The accoustics are great, as is the ambience among the wood and stone interior.

This is the home of the Festival of the Sound which runs every summer for 3 weeks with some of the top classical and jazz performers in the world. Almost all the seats are worth it. Performers come back year after year because they love the place. One can buy wine or ice cream or coffee and they often break... More

The Centre contains the Bobby Orr Hall of Fame but I was only there once about 10 years ago. It also contains one of the best small (approximately 425 seats) concert halls in Canada. It has excellent acoustics and can compete with similar sized halls in Europe. It is situated on the shore of Georgian Bay in Parry Sound and... More

The Stockey Centre is a great hall for all kinds of performances. The acoustics are really great which isn't surprising when you look closely at the use of wood, natural uneven stone and the placement of seats. You get a good view of the stage wherever you sit - including the mezzanine boxes. The seats are quite good but a... More
