The Leavenworth International Accordion Celebration in Leavenworth, Washington is nearly here. By the time you receive the summer issue of the NWAS News, the deadlines for entering competition, bursary awards, and reduced rate tickets will have passed. You may still buy tickets at the door for workshops and concerts.
There are some new things and some old things to bring to your attention for LIAC. First the new:
The music is found on line at www.accordioncelebration.org under the gazebo tab. You may print from that. If that’s not possible the music will be available at Das Copy Shoppe in Leavenworth. Jim O’Brien will hold a free workshop Thursday afternoon, June 18 at 3:30, to go over the music. This is not mandatory but would be helpful and fun besides.
Our grange performance slots are filled and only a few openings are available at the gazebo as we go to press. Review the schedule at www.nwasnews.com Remember, performers need to be on time – arriving in advance of the scheduled performance. There is little transition time between performers so everyone must be ready to go. Make contact with the emcee of each venue so that he/she knows you are present. If you need special equipment – music stand, stool etc remember to bring them. Our free entertainment in the heart of town at the grange and gazebo is always well received. We want to provide audience friendly music. Of course, Bavarian apparel is always welcome.
Remember, if you need special equipment during the competition you must provide that also. There are folding chairs at the grange, gazebo and festhalle. So, a music stand or stool will not be provided.
There is still time to commit to a volunteer shift during the accordion celebration. Contact Frank Bruckner: email@example.com to help. The more help we have the less work for EVERYBODY. There will be fantastic workshops and even more fantastic concerts during the accordion celebration. Don’t miss the fun. See you in Leavenworth June 18 – 21, for the love of the accordion.
