Accordion Kings and Queens 25th Anniversary

Thanks to everyone that joined us at our 25th annual Accordion Kings and Queens concert. What a great night with great music and fun! Here is a photo recap by the one and only David Dodd. 

Miller Outdoor Theatre

Houston's Miller Outdoor Theatre in Hermann Park is unique in the United States, offering an 8 month season of professional entertainment that is artistically excellent, culturally diverse and always FREE of charge to the public. This is the largest "always free" program of its kind in the country.

Hohner Accordions

 Worldwide, millions of music lovers play instruments by HOHNER and SONOR. Beginners, advanced players and professionals of all ages and in all musical styles value their reliability, quality and outstanding product design, created in cooperation with musicians to meet their specific needs.

Texas Music Office

The Texas Music Office (TMO) is a state-funded business promotion office and information clearinghouse for the Texas music industry. The TMO assists more than 14,000 individual clients each year, ranging from a new band trying to make statewide business contacts to BBC journalists seeking information on Down South Hip hop. The TMO is the sister office to the Texas Film Commission, both of which are within the Office of the Governor.

 

Grammy Foundation

The GRAMMY Foundation was established in 1988 to cultivate the understanding, appreciation and advancement of the contribution of recorded music to American culture — from the artistic and technical legends of the past to the still unimagined musical breakthroughs of future generations of music professionals. The Foundation accomplishes this mission through programs and activities that engage the music industry and cultural community as well as the general public.

The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts

The Kennedy Center, located on the banks of the Potomac River near the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., opened to the public in September 1971. But its roots date back to 1958, when President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed bipartisan legislation creating a National Cultural Center. To honor Eisenhower's vision for such a facility, one of the Kennedy Center's theaters is named for him.
