On Sunday February 4th, the halls of the Royal Henley Retirement Community and Ina Grafton Gage Village in St. Catharines echoed with the sound of music. Sora Sato-Mound, Hilary Chan, Keris Choi and Veronika Manchur, all from the Royal Conservatory, delighted over one hundred residents with their talent and professionalism.
This isn’t the first time Music Niagara has brought music to Niagara-area retirement communities. In total since beginning this initiative, Music Niagara has presented eight concerts to local area homes. “It is a unique way to give back to our community and our supporters” Artistic Director Atis Bankas remarked.
This week’s double header is just the latest in what Bankas says is an ongoing series. “We have plans to continue bringing great music to these retirement communities in the months and years to come.”
The Big Night 2018
Our annual fundraising event will be held on Saturday June 2nd, 5:30 at the Niagara-on-the-Lake Community Centre. Call your friends and put together a table.

Tickets are $1200 for a table of 8 or $150 each and are already on sale here .
Look out for our Season announcement coming soon. We have lots of wonderful concerts in store for you.
Hosting for Music Niagara
Every year, Music Niagara brings world renown artists to our beautiful town. Part of what makes Music Niagara unique is our wonderfully dedicated volunteer group who open up their homes to host these visiting artists. As Music Niagara grows, we’d love to see our network of hosts grow as well. From commitments as short as one night, to longer stays with the talented youngsters of the Performance Academy, Music Niagara has a wide-range of varying needs for accommodations. If you’re interested in learning more about hosting for Music Niagara, please email us: email@example.com
During the festival, volunteers are an essential part of our operation. From serving wine, to taking tickets and handing out programs, we rely on a strong network of volunteers on a daily basis. If you would like to join the team, let us know !
