Word from the president
For this 2022 edition, what a pleasure to find you in our privileged formula to welcome musicians from different cultures and backgrounds and to pursue our promise to make you discover the many talents from home. You will therefore find your Carrefour of the last 3 decades, however, with changes. First of all, it will be our new artistic director Steve Normandin’s first edition, feverish to make you discover some of his favorites. Then, although the change has taken place over the past three years, we have a renewed permanent team under the general direction of Mrs. Kathéry Couillard. It is a promise for the future! With the support of our sponsors and with the support of a team of experienced volunteers, we all look forward to experiencing this great meeting of the thrill box with you!
With this 33rd edition, we maintain our promise to continue our world tour of the accordion planet, to introduce you to great artists and to experience the enchantment!
Welcome to this great world accordion festival!
Mister Marc Laurin
Montmagny City Mayor
For a 33rd edition, I am very happy to see this great musical event that is the Carrefour mondial de l’accordéon return to us. After a year’s break, it is with enthusiasm that I welcome the return of the great magnymontois musical rendezvous that is the Carrefour mondial de l’accordéon!
Year after year, it’s always nice to welcome these thrill box virtuosos from all over the world to show us the extent of their talent and to have the privilege of learning a little more about their culture.
From September 2 to 4, it will also be a great pleasure for me to meet the many visitors who will stroll through the streets of Montmagny to enjoy these three days of festivities while discovering our magnificent city and brilliant artists.
The municipal council’s members join me in welcoming accordionists and visitors and to wish excellent Carrefour mondial de l’accordéon to all!
The Honourable Pablo Rodriguez
Minister of Canadian Heritage
As Minister of Canadian Heritage, it’s my pleasure to welcome you to the 2022 Carrefour mondial de l’accordéon.
This year, talented musicians from coast to coast and across the world will come together in Montmagny to share the beautiful sounds of the accordion. Le Carrefour places this distinct and resonant instrument front and centre and invites us to rediscover our musical heritage. Our government is proud to support this celebratory musical event.
I would like to thank all the organizers, musicians, and volunteers who have helped ensure a successful 33rd edition of the Carrefour Mondial de l’accordéon. Enjoy the music!
