Music Notes

 

We have come to the end of the 19th season of the Music Niagara summer festival and what an amazing time we had!
 
We made some wonderful new friends: Oystein Baadsvik, Christopher Hall and The Fitzgeralds, to name just a few. And we enjoyed return visits from some of our favourites like Robert Silverman, James Cameron, the Toronto All-Star Big Band, and the Trinity College Cambridge Choir (presented in partnership with St. Mark’s Church).
 
Guido, Dave, Terry and John delighted us with jazz standards and Quartetto Gelato were as energetic as ever for our closing concert.

We had our challenges, everything from storms to last-minute reprogramming, but we survived and prospered. This was thanks in part to you, our loyal patrons, who braved the elements to enjoy Whiskey Jack under the tent at The Village, and took a chance on Victoria Kogan and Leopoldo Erice who understudied so brilliantly for André LaPlante.
 
Thank you all for coming and supporting us in so many ways.
