Accordion close up

We would like to let all accordionists and potential future students know that the Royal Academy of Music Accordion Department will be holding an Open Day and lunchtime concert on Tuesday 27th October 2015.

The free concert will be at 1.05 – 2.00 pm in the David Josefowitz Recital Hall and will feature Accordion chamber music with Academy woodwind players.  Following the concert, at 2.30 pm there will be a talk by Owen Murray on the work of the accordion department and the development of accordion repertoire and performing opportunities.

Part of the Royal Academy of Music’s  400+ series, which takes inspiration from Monteverdi’s invention over 400 years ago of a resonating chamber that boldly merged radical and traditional sounds.

The afternoon will finish at 5.00 pm.
