Hosted by the Rostov-on-Don City Administration with the support of our CIA member "The International Music Center 'Harmony', The 69th Coupe Mondiale, the first in Russia, was a terrific success, featuring some of the finest young accordionists from around the world.
The CIA has enjoyed a long and stellar relationship with Russia. Today, Russia has three voting members of the CIA and Russian candidates have successfully contested many of the CIA Coupe Mondiale categories of competition over many decades. In addition, Russian membership in the CIA has provided valuable input and support to our CIA Executive and Music committees.
20 year old Aleksandr Komelkov from Russia won the coveted title, having previously won the Junior Coupe Mondiale, then the Masters Coupe Mondiale before taking the Coupe Mondiale title before his home country audience.
