Dear accordion lovers,
Once again, some of the world’s best accordion soloists and ensembles will be “descending” into the beautiful city of Victoria, British Columbia, from July 26 to 31. But this year the Victoria International Accordion Festival will have a special flavor – we are celebrating our 10th anniversary. In the previous nine years, Victoria International Accordion Festival has established itself as one of the most recognized accordion festivals in North America. Probably the greatest achievement was hosting the 66th Coupe Mondiale, the world’s largest accordion event, back in 2013 as the part of the 7th Victoria Accordion Festival, when hundreds of accordionists from all over the world showcased their talents for thousands in the audience. Ensemble Concertino, Trio Voronezh, Frank Marocco, Quartetto Gelatto, Alexander Sevastian, Renzo Ruggieri, Ludovic Beier, Grayson Masefield, Jelena Milojevic, World Accordion Orchestra are just some of the names who thrilled the audience in Victoria in the last decade.
