The Forte Story

ForteSound.com - info@fortesound.caBrothers Joel and Joshua Riker-Fox are the passionate people behind Forte. Joel grew up with music in his heart from the first year he was born. That love evolved into many character-defining pursuits; musician, student, sound-man and eventually an ear and eye for high quality event production. Josh grew up passionate about music of all forms and like Joel, developed a taste for event production.

Both Joel and Josh share a common bond through sport as well. Joel was a Junior Elite Triathlete competing nationally and Josh is a Pentathlete, having represented Canada at the Summer Olympic Games. The values garnered through high performance sport translated into a tenacious desire to create superior event experiences for others; something uniquely achievable through Forte Sound & Stage. Joel (BCC) and Josh (MBA) both studied at the University of Calgary, and perhaps their passion for powerful event experiences emerged from their continual exposure to events of every variety through their scholastic and athletic careers - galas, fundraisers, sport events, graduations, weddings, night clubs, award ceremonies and so on.

Joel and Josh founded Forte Sound & Stage in 2013 and proudly bring their excellence to all types of sound and stage events.
