Aves means (Amsterdam) Accordion Association “Own Style”. AVES is not a virtuoso orchestra which plays the most difficult pieces in many even more difficult parts and voices. For us playing nice and popular music and entertaining our audience is priority. For the most part our repertoire contains pieces that almost everyone in Amsterdam knows by heart, can sing or hum: Songs about Amsterdam, operetta melodies, french musettes, evergreens, etc. We rehearse every Mondayevening from 7 till 10 pm in SBO School ‘De Kans’, Thomas van Aquinostraat 2, 1064 NE Amsterdam.
AVES was founded on February 12, 1986 as Accordion Associanton Osdorp. That name indicated that it was located in the western part of Amsterdam, called Osdorp. After a beginning with a handful of members, rehearsing in a livingroom of the chairman, AVES changed his name and grew to app. 25 members. Feel free to visit one of our rehearsels or concerts. Coffee and tea are always fresh.
