Roland Announces 3rd Annual V-Accordion Festival

May 19, 2010

Now Accepting Audition Videos for National Competition in September 2010

In conjunction with the fourth International V-Accordion Festival, Roland U.S. is proud to announce that audition videos are now being accepted for the U.S. National V-Accordion Festival that will take place in Los Angeles on Saturday, September 18, 2010. Contestants can submit their videos until July 15, 2010.

This year's V-Accordion Festival holds a special significance, as Roland is also celebrating reaching the milestone of 10,000 V-Accordions sold since its launch in 2004. Accordion players everywhere have embraced the versatile nature of Roland V-Accordions, and have discovered that the warm sound and tactile playability of this charming instrument remains unchanged from its traditional relatives.

The National V-Accordion Festival will be held at Roland Corporation U.S. headquarters in Los Angeles, California, and will bring together some of America's most talented accordionists. The Grand Prize winner will win a Roland FR-7x accordion and a trip to Rome, Italy, to compete for the World Title and 5,000 Euros at the fourth International Accordion Festival in October.

Initial audition entrants may play on a traditional accordion or a Roland V-Accordion, with both amateurs and professionals eligible to compete. The chosen national finalists will then play on V-Accordions through special loan arrangements made by Roland Corporation U.S. and its dealers.

Be a part of the growing number of accordion enthusiasts in the U.S. and around the world by competing in this one-of-a-kind event sponsored by Roland Corporation U.S.
