Join us for an unforgettable summer.

Welcome Letter from our Artistic Director

Join us for our 26th Season 

Dear Friends, Guests, and Music Enthusiasts,

As the Founder and Artistic Director, it is with great pleasure and excitement that I invite you to join us for Music Niagara’s 26th season. This year, we proudly step into the second quarter of our musical century with a lineup that promises to be both exhilarating and diverse.

We are thrilled to introduce a series of performances in a brand-new venue: our own tent at the scenic Ironwood Cider House in Niagara-on-the-Lake. This picturesque setting will host our new Pops Series, blending superb music with fine food and drinks.

In addition to our new venue, we continue to offer concerts in unique and intimate locales, including the summer-favorite Ravine Estate Winery, the acoustically splendid St. Mark’s Church, Grace United Church, and Mount Carmel Chapel. This season also features a special jazz performance on Canada Day at the Spirit in Niagara Distillery.

Our festival, spanning from June 16 to August 16, will showcase an array of talented national and international performers across various genres. I encourage each of you to explore our full program and discover the performances that touch your soul and spark your interest.

Join us in celebrating a summer of music, community, and beauty in Niagara. We look forward to welcoming you!

With great appreciation and warmest musical regards,

Atis Bankas

Artistic Director, Music Niagara Festival
