The ICA will be sponsoring the first-ever World Concertina Day on February 6th, 2022, the 220th anniversary of the birth of Sir Charles Wheatstone, inventor of the English concertina. World Concertina Day will also celebrate the 70th anniversary of the ICA’s founding in 1952. We hope to bring together concertina people all over the world that day to celebrate the concertina and to raise awareness of the concertina with the general public and media.
The ICA encourages everyone with an interest in the concertina to participate on February 6, 2022 or on that weekend by taking part in or organizing an event in your local area. More details are here!
