The accordion, the concertina, the Argentinian bandoneón, the Russian bayan, the Chinese sheng, the Korean saenghwang: all belong to a global family of instruments whose distinctive music bring as lively a presence to the concert hall as to the organ grinder’s street corner.

Acclaimed Canadian accordionist Joe Macerollo joins Canadian wunderkind Michael Bridge, Argentinian bandoneón virtuoso Hector del Curto, and others in a multi-cultural celebration of classic and contemporary “squeezebox” music accompanied by a small chamber ensemble. Including tangos and works by Canadians Marjan Mozetich and Alexina Louie, the program also features a world premiere by Anna Pidgorna, one of Canada’s most exciting emerging composers.
