Rhythms of the Markham Village Music Festival 2007

photos by Grant Weaver, GuidingStar.ca

(Jun. 17.07)     Main Street Markham throbbed with excitement on Friday evening and Saturday, June 15 and 16. The Markham Village Music Festival brought out music and dance lovers of all ages who enjoyed the rhythms of four stages, great food, shopping and a Midway with rides and games.
     Friday evening's shows began with music and dance performances from Markham's many cultural communities and closed with some high tempo jazz and funk, and some more laid back champagne music for the romantic at heart, with lots of other rhythms in between.
      Saturday's program was highlighted by flutist Rob Christian, the delightful group Cat 'n the Fiddle, and the big band sounds of the Markham Concert Band and the Thornhill Community Band.

Tarana Dance captivated the audience
with the rhythms and colour of India.
Viva Flamenco brought a Spanish beat to the North Stage.
   
The Noura Noura Bellydance Group
 raised the evening temperature.
