Here's the latest update of 2020
March 23, 2020
The situation in the country and our local area has changed so much since the advent of COVID-19. There has been a lot of discussion on whether we will be able to have LIAC 2020. We are hoping for improvement in the situation but it is difficult to be optimistic. The website is updated with all concerts and workshops. We are holding-off on Advanced ticket sales, competition registration, and gazebo sign-up for 2-3 weeks. If we have to cancel LIAC 2020, we will reschedule it for June 17,18,19,20, 2021 with as much of the same program as possible.

We are getting there. Please see the website for the latest on Concerts and Workshops. By April we will be taking sign-ups for the Gazebo performances. Be sure to look at the Competition section for opportunities to compete or perform in a non-competitive environment. Soon, we will publish a new book for the Gazebo Ensemble to use for their gazebo performances. This can be found in the Performance/Gazebo Schedule section of the website.

Dear LIAC Friends,
LIAC 2019 was another amazing and successful event.
As you can see, we have a new website. The navigation options are still the same but the outward appears of the website is totally different.
Before 2019 ends, we will have updates for the 2020 program. In the meantime, you can still see what we did in 2019. We will still have the Competition, Festhalle Concerts, the gazebo program, and the Grange programs.
Competition: For all of you who play the accordion or have students who play, PLEASE check out the website under the Competition tab. This event is not just a competition; it is also a chance to perform on the Festhalle stage and be heard by our stellar judges and audience. The Artistry category is non-competitive but still gives the same incentive to strive for excellence in playing. Please check it out.
Website: We have a new website.
Gazebo: The gazebo sign-up will be available in April 2020.
Donations: We always appreciate donations for the Bursary fund for young players. Your donations and attendance at LIAC are so much appreciated.
Volunteering: This is a fun activity and an easy way to meet people besides being so important to the festival’s success. See the tab Overview/Volunteer Signup.
See you soon….Bonnie and the hard-working committee
