Music Niagara presents
A look back at summer 2022


Message from Atis Bankas, Artistic Director (for the 2022 Summer Season)

Dear Friends,

It is our pleasure to welcome you to Music Niagara’s 24th season as we thankfully look forward to coming together for live concert performances once again.

History has taught us that human desire for love, joy and beauty is always present even throughout our most tragic periods.  Music and art have constantly helped people find their spiritual equilibrium, and I hope this year’s concerts will help our audiences to do just that.

Come to enjoy and to feel romantic and spiritual, contemplative and energized, jazzy and poetic – all of this in our summer season, performed for you in beautiful surroundings and intimate venues in Niagara on the Lake by great Canadian, American and European musicians.

Best Regards, 

Atis Bankas – Artistic Director, Music Niagara Festival
