Squeezebox Circle Orchestra

Under the guidance of Todd Wong and Alan Zisman, visitors to the Vancouver Squeezebox Circle rehearse shared repertoire of traditional musical pieces originating from various and diverse cultures to illustrate the mixed and multicultural history of the City of Vancouver and its neighbourhoods through accordion performance. This ensemble is pressed into service to inaugurate our annual Accordion Noir Festivals as well as for outreach performances at other public cultural events such as the Heart of the City Festival and the Word on the Street literary festival.
