Accordions Around the World to Close Season with a Squeezebox Extravaganza

Accordions Around the World is an event that knows how to make an exit. Last year, we ended the series by hosting the American Accordionists' Association. Over 100 accordionists played Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York." This year, we're doing something equally spectacular.

Tuesday is the series finale. We'll have 25 accordionists playing around the park for the full duration of the 2-hour event. You'll be able to sample the musical buffet at a leisurely pace, stopping to enjoy the musicians who are especially appealing to you.
