About

Established in September 2015, Momentum Western New York is a highly disciplined, professionally facilitated performance choir that developed from a vision to nurture the gifts of musicians who live with a disability.  Artistic Director and founder Dr. Joni Milgram-Luterman was inspired by the performers and Artistic Director Mendelt Hoekstra of the original, highly successful Momentum Choir from the Niagara Region of Canada, whose mission is “to provide an authentic musical experience in which the gifts of unique artists can be professionally nurtured, and through which the artists can be given the opportunity to belong, believe and inspire.”
