Confédération Internationale des Accordéonistes (CIA) Unveils New Website

New CIA site
Freddy Balta, 1938The Confédération Internationale des Accordéonistes (CIA), a proud member of the International Music Council (IMC) an Official NGO partner of UNESCO has just unveiled its brand new website, offering a new look for the 82 year old organization.

The newly released site features all the latest technology making it adaptive for various viewing mediums, while adding updated and new content.

One highlight is the addition of pictures of all of the World Champions. The first International competition was held in 1938 when it was won by the French accordionist Freddy Balta (picture left). The competition was suspended around the war years, and when it resumed in 1948, the competition was officially named the Coupe Mondiale and won by Yvette Horner.

Through the extensive CIA Archive collection being held in at the CIA headquarters in Finland, and help from CIA member nations, over the course of many years, it was possible to find pictures of all the Champions, which have now been added to the site. In addition, pictures have also been added of the 12 CIA Presidents found during the CIA's 82 year history as well as other historical information.

The site contains a full list of the CIA members and Award Winners, with additional information on the IMC and the various CIA projects including the World Accordion Orchestra, The World Accordion Museum Alliance, Archives and World Accordion Day.

We invite you to explore the new site by visiting www.accordions.com/cia/
