==========================

July 26-31, 2016

The 10th annual Victoria Accordion Festival was magical.  Great music, accomplished musicians, and satisfied crowds.  Accordionists from other Canadian provinces and other countries (New Zealand, China and Chile) performed. 

Performances were held well-known locations around Victoria, including noon-hour concerts at city hall’s Centennial Square, and the band stand in Victoria’s popular Beacon Hill Park.  The formal evening concerts and the competitions took place at the First Metropolitan United Church at 932 Balmoral Road in Victoria.

The Victoria Accordion Club band performed several times during the festival, including:

– Tuesday, July 26 at Centennial Square at 12 noon; enjoying songs of the 60s

– Saturday, July 30 at First Metropolitan Church – finale concert – 7:30 pm; special presentation of the Phantom Of The Opera, performed by Ginny & Greg Langham

– Sunday, July 31 at Beacon Hill Park band shell – free public concert – 1:30 pm; a sunny, warm afternoon of music in the park
