Musical upgrade for Festival of Lights
From the Niagara Falls Review:
You’re going to hear a lot of Niagara Falls composer Nathan Chamberland at the upcoming Winter Festival of Lights. Over and over again.
An eight and a half minute score Chamberland wrote will be matched with the light displays at Dufferin Islands, giving the park a musical component to go with several new attractions.
Chamberland, a veteran musician who ran the Niagara Music Awards for two years, says his name was brought up to Festival organizers who were looking for a local artist to create the score.
“They wanted to hire a Niagara Falls resident instead of going somewhere else,” he says. “They contacted me and said ‘Would you submit some stuff?’ I did, and they said ‘This is great, could you compose eight and a half minutes worth of music?'”
