Markham Music Festival...

Generously supported by TD Canada Trust, Euromusic Centre again successfully hosted the 17th Markham Music Festival from March 23, 2012 to April 8, 2012. Dedicated to advancement of music studies, this year the festival attracted about 1000 entries not only from Markham, but also all over greater Toronto, Richmond Hill, Scarborough, as west as Mississauga, and as east as Whitby, Ontario. The forum provided young pianists an opportunity to showcase their artistry as well as given professional assessments to guide improvement. The Festival also encourages and rewards excellent achievements, and brings music and people together in a unique cultural occasion community in Markham.

The Three adjudicators are all highly respected musicians in the music circle. We are fortunate to have Ms. Arianne Ewing-Chow, Mr. James Lawless, and Dr. Joseph Ferretti, all members of the College of Examiners of the Royal Conservatory of Music as our adjudicators. They offered their expert evaluations and shared with us their musical knowledge and experiences. The performers were phenomenal and the results extremely remarkable. Many Young promising talents were discovered and acknowledged.

We are extremely proud to have the eminent Professor Lee Kum Sing of the faculty of music of the University of British Columbia as our Honorary Chaiman who addressed all participants with encouragement and expounded on the true spirit of music festival through an ideal ambience of harmony, creatively as well as the presentation of musical appreciation and interpretation. It was in exactly the kind of friendly environment and atmosphere that the Markham Music Festival debuted. Enthusiastic audience packed the concert hall everyday and night, appreciating and applauding every performer.

We like to extend our gratitude to all the supportive parents who through rain, snow and sleet brought their young musicians to participate in this meaningful event. Furthermore, to all the piano teachers who have assiduously prepared their students to a high standard of performance. Many thanks to all the volunteers who have contributed their precious gift of time and very friendly and able assistance.
