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.
