Our annual Music Festival is a a competition for accordion students that are members of the AAC. Featuring a variety of classes and an adjudicator to come judge the hard work and talent of our community.
The Accordion Association of Calgary is a registered non-profit association established in 1989. We are a group of teachers, students, parents, and accordion enthusiasts who encourage the playing and development of the accordion. We work together to create performance opportunities for our musicians and listening opportunities for the public. Through recitals, concerts, and an annual music festival, the accordion is alive and well in Calgary! Since 1990 we have enabled accordionists to present their music to the public. We represent all genres of music played by soloists, groups and orchestras alike. Ethnic or Folk, Jazz, Classical, Pop, or Modern musical styles are embraced by our members and teachers. The AAC also maintains a set of guiding principals and standards for grade levels and exams for its students. We have also established a music "library" to help maintain the original scores and selections needed for our students to continue to learn
