Concert | Accordion Festival: Sounds of the Lower East Side


In the 19th century, the accordion became a popular instrument not only in Eastern Europe, but throughout the continent. And as migrants made the trip overseas to America, many brought their accordions along with them. As a result, the instrument played a prominent role in the musical life of the Lower East Side. In those days, the sounds of the accordion evoked the old country. But today, musicians from around the globe are breathing new life and traditions into this old-time instrument. Celebrate the accordion’s longstanding legacy! In a historic sanctuary, accordionists James Keane, Ismail Butera and Angel “Arison” Gutierrez, along with host Bob Godfried, will present the instrument’s global reach. Enjoy accordion tunes from Klezmer, Irish, Dominican, Balkan and Mediterranean cultures!

Concert | 45th Annual Merry Tuba Christmas


Hundreds of tenor and bass tuba players will congregate to play Christmas carols and other crowd favorites. Tubists of all ages will line up under the famous Christmas tree and fill the plaza with the organ-line sound of low brass. Spectators are encouraged to sing along with the Christmas carols and holiday favorites. The musicians, hailing from across the country, will be conducted by Chris Wilhjelm, conductor of the famous Goldman band. Conceived by tuba virtuoso Harvey Phillips to honor his teacher, the late William J. Bell (Born Christmas Day, 1902), the first Tuba Christmas was presented at Rockefeller Center in 1974, conducted by Paul LaValle, of Band of America fame. This unusual Christmas tradition is firmly established in over 200 cities around the world.
