Music Niagara Festival’s 21st season offers exceptional performances by Canadian and international artists that will leave the audiences inspired, intrigued, amused, better informed, and above all, entertained.  You will enjoy hearing young rising stars, among them some of the 2018 winners of the Canada Council’s Instrument Bank Competition, playing priceless instruments including two Stradivarius violins. Our Music Niagara Performance Academy young virtuosos will delight you with their incredible skills and maturity beyond their years.

It would be impossible to mount Music Niagara’s impressive Festival and all-season performances, without the help of our major financial partners. These public and private partners annually contribute a total of more than $150,000, together providing the core funding necessary to bring the Festival to life.

Each year, a team of staff and Board members connect directly with potential partners to shape ways an organization can support us—and we can support them. If your company, or one you know, wants to be associated with fine music and the people who appreciate it, contact Executive Director Hannah Zachariah.

More than 90 individuals, couples and families provide financial support annually through our Friends of Music Niagara Program.
