At Home Series – JUNE 20 – SEPTEMBER 22

Each summer, for over two decades, Music Niagara Festival has been bringing unforgettable diverse music experiences to unique and intimate settings in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Our 23rd season will start with celebrating the summer solstice and will continue through the last day of summer. We will continue to bring great music to you wherever you are through our At Home series, and  with some live audiences present. 

We have prepared a very exciting season that celebrates the 300th anniversary of Bach’s Brandenburg concerti, along with music of Vivaldi. After all, Vivaldi influenced Bach in so many ways, and according to experts, Vivaldi taught Bach to think musically!

We will continue to offer you the juxtaposition of classical and jazz genres in our ever popular “Paris Connection.” Our young violin virtuosos will perform all five Mozart concertos in celebration of the 265th anniversary of the birth Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

Music Niagara Festival’s 23rd season will be filled with laughter, fun and entertainment, all the things that we’ve been yearning to experience for such a long time.
