From 5-6pm each Tuesday evening, six accordionists will be stationed around the park like a musical buffet--take a spin around the park and sample different styles. From 6-7:30pm each week, a different band featuring accordionists will take over and ignite the park with global rhythms. These photos show some of our favorite moments from last year's series, and we can't wait for Accordions Around the World to return! Produced in cooperation with Ariana's List.
