Celebrating 25 Years


Dear Friends and Music Lovers,

As Music Niagara festival’s 25 th anniversary season is fast approaching I have been experiencing an overwhelming mixture of feelings of joy, pride, recurring musical memories, paired with struggles and great accomplishments. The result is the reflection in musical terms.

As the founder and Artistic Director I’m happy to let you know that this upcoming season will contain many of these above mentioned feelings. Music Niagara Festival, the longest running music festival in Niagara region will present live performances not only of classical music, but indeed a great variety of genres, including jazz, reggae, Celtic, choral, spoken word, in performances of works by composers ranging from baroque, classical, romantic to impressionists, Afro-Classic, folk, and contemporary.

Our public will enjoy a great artistic lineup of seasoned and young performers representing a huge pool of talents. We are also starting a new Music Niagara Pops series, as well as a refreshing Wine and Music series.

We are continuing to give special place and attention to Ukrainian music and Ukrainian musicians as part of Canada’s support of Ukraine’s war efforts.

I’m proud to invite our audiences to participate in ourBehind the Scenes of Music series with masterclasses and public performances by Music Niagara Performance Academy participants, culminating in performances by the teaching faculty.

Our grand finale, which will follow the annual Music Niagara Golf Tournament, will be a celebration of joy, laughter and music, all that Canada represents, including the participation of musicians from my “old” country Lithuania, where the capital Vilnius is turning seven hundred years old.

For twenty five years I feel very lucky to present concerts in unique and intimate settings with superb acoustics in one of the most beautiful towns in the world, Niagara-on-the-Lake. With concerts scheduled to take place from the second half of June through the end of August, I’m sure that everyone will be able to find many special and interesting events in our 25th anniverssary season.

Come and join us, and let’s celebrate together!

With great appreciation and warmest musical regards,

Atis Bankas
