NIA GARA INTERNATIONAL CHAMBER MUSICFESilVAL l give this festival top marks for the way it celebrates its connection with the two main attractions of the area in which it is located - grape growing/ wine making and the Shaw Festival. Four of the festival's venues are wineries and several concerts are built around the theme of wine and music. The connection with the Shaw Festival is made by three concerts at which some of George Bernard Shaw's music reviews are read aloud and the music reviewed in them is performed- a brilliant piece of programming in my opinion.
