1st Accordion Festival, Pera Oreinis – Cyprus

PosterCyprus’ first Accordion Festival, organised by Cleopatra Charalambous and Angelos Doukas, takes place from May 4th to May 6th in Pera Oreinis, Cyprus. The festival includes several workshops, seminars and concerts. Pera Oreinis is a village 19 kilometres south of Nicosia.

On Friday May 4th the festival opens with an Open Accordion Exhibition & Technical Support at the village cultural centre, an Interactive Musical Theatre for children, featuring Leon the Accordion. The First Accordion Band of Cyprus (MD Cleopatra Charalambous) will be entertaining from the central stage in the village square along with the visiting Leipzig Akkordeon Ensemble, from Germany, and, later in the evening, with the local group Parapera.

The following two days include seminars on subjects such as ‘Accordion in Greek Traditional Music’; concerts (including the Young Volunteer Choir featuring the Windcraft Kids’ Band, and DJ Vassilis Palamas); and the ‘Learn about the Harmonica’. There’s also a live performance on the third day which will see all the workshop attendees performing live in the village streets – a sort of wandering minstrel event with groups popping out of alleyways to delight and surprise. And the entire three-day event will culminate in a village square showcase which includes both the Bellw Epoque Music Band and the First Accordion Band of Cyprus.
