Organization Name:
Kingsville Music Society
Organization Description:
Incorporated in 2013, The Kingsville Music Society (KMS) is an Ontario registered not-for-profit organization dedicated to presenting non-alienating world-class celebrations of the musical arts. KMS creates productions that engage audiences with diverse programming, stimulate arts education, foster economic growth, and unite artists and audiences in Kingsville. KMS started as the Sun Parlour Folk Music Society in 2013 with the vision of bringing high-quality artists from around the world to perform in Kingsville and the surrounding area. In 2020 the Society committed to further growth of the organization expanding and developing new multi-genre live music events and in 2021 the Society name changed to the Kingsville Music Society to embrace this growth. KMS operates year-round to plan and produce an annual multi-day, multi-venue music festival, off-season concerts and Open Streets Kingsville. KMS works in partnership with the Town of Kingsville to provide music experiences throughout the year and outside of regular Society programming. Conceived as a result of the pandemic and cancellation of the 2020 and 2021 Kingsville Folk Music Festival, the Greenway Jam will be the organization’s main event in 2022, potentially replacing the Festival going forward. With the support of the stewards of the Chrysler Greenway, Essex Regional Conservation Authority (ERCA), the KMS plan to grow the event in the coming years to providing entertainment, exercise and education across all 45 kms.
