Celebrating 25 Years



Dear Friends and Music Lovers,

Music Niagara Festival’s 25th anniversary season has come to a close. This year was a huge success, and I am thrilled to have presented concerts full of joy, laughter, and music, in all styles that Canada represents.

It takes a village of supporters to present festivals like ours. Some of that comes from grants, some from donors and sponsors, and some from ticket sales. So I would like to extend a huge and heartfilled THANK YOU to everyone who has participated this year to help bring this 25th season to life. We couldn’t have done it without you!

We have exciting plans for next year, and we look forward to presenting another 25 years of world class music to the Niagara region as the area’s longest running festival!

Once again, thank you for your support!

Sincerely yours, Atis Bankas
