The Oregon High School Performing Arts Center will host the 33rd annual Rudy Burkhalter Memorial Accordion Jamboree.
Live music will feature accordions, bandonions, chromatics, concertinas, button boxes and electronic accordions.
The event will be held on Sunday, May 1 from 1 to 5 p.m.
Burkhalter, an extraordinary accordionist, yodeler and entertainer, initiated the Accordion Jamboree in 1978 at the Chalet St. Moritz, the Swiss restaurant in Middleton where he performed on weekends for more than 30 years.
Burkhalter’s brush with national fame came in 1956 when the Walt Disney Studios came to Madison to film an eight-episode TV series “Adventure in Dairyland” featuring Annette Funicello. Burkhalter provided music for the sound track, including his original song “Teach Me How to Yodel.”
Food and refreshments will be provided by the Brooklyn Community United Methodist Church.
There's no admission charge, but a free will donation is appreciated.
