As its summer season winds down, Music Niagara is hosting two concerts at St. Mark’s Church in Niagara-on-the-Lake this weekend.

Heather Bambrick and her quintet perform Friday, Aug. 19, at 7 p.m.

Bambrick, who has been called one of the finest jazz singers in this country by WholeNote Magazine, has appeared as a guest performer with numerous jazz ensembles and symphony orchestras.

On Saturday at 4 p.m., “Glory to Ukraine” will feature Ukrainian-born American violinist Solomiya Ivakhiv.

Along with American pianist Steven Beck and the CamerAtis Ensemble, she will perform works by Ukrainian composers Lysenko, Kosenko, Stankovich and Barvinsky.

Tickets for each show are $40 plus HST and available on the Music Niagara website.

As well, on Friday, Emma Meinrenken, an acclaimed alumna of Music Niagara’s Performance Academy, will perform a special free concert with Ivakhiv in Addison Hall  at St. Mark’s.

Showtime is noon.
