Sometimes I think my papa is an accordion. When he looks at me and smiles and breathes, I hear the notes.

Angels and Accordions by Robert Judge

An accordion orchestra? I didn't realize there was such a thing. Several accordion videos today, including one about a little girl who became the Accordion Queen:

I've found that music allows years to fold like an accordion over each other, so I guess you don't feel the passage of time as much.

Okay, I didn't have very high expectations when I began watching these videos. (One might say I was a bit of a snob about it. :-(

But I came away very impressed. The accordion orchestra was very good and did Gershwin proud.

And the young man who did the Vivaldi piece was outstanding.

Thanks for the education, Tabatha.
