SMAAC
Crystal Wang, Nova WanAccordion figureAufgrund der COVID-19-Epidemie in diesem Jahr waren die Akkordeon-Lehrgänge und Prüfungsmethoden der Shanghai Musicians Association betroffen. In der ersten Hälfte dieses Jahres hat das Akkordeon-Komitee der Shanghai Musicians Association unter der Leitung der bekannten Lehrerin Crystal Wang eine Online-Bewertungs-App entwickelt, die den Bildungsanforderungen entspricht.

Da diese Prüfung das erste Mal ist, dass das Akkordeon-Fachkomitee Online-Operationen ausprobiert hat, werden diese Sitzungsprüfungen und die Eltern gebeten, auf relevante Ankündigungen zu achten:

Das Akkordeon-Komitee der Shanghai Music Association 2020 hat einen Online-Prüfungslehrplan für alle Akkordeon-Enthusiasten in ganz China entwickelt. Jeder kann sich gerne registrieren und es werden mehrere tausend Bewerber erwartet.

Die Akkordeonprüfungen der Shanghai Music Association 2020 werden im letzten Quartal 2020 stattfinden.

Das Akkordeonprüfungsrepertoire der Shanghai Music Association 2020 wird die vom Shanghai Music Publishing House herausgegebene "Akkordeonprüfungssammlung" (Satz 6) verwenden.

Informationen und Termine für den Prüfungseintritt werden in naher Zukunft bekannt gegeben.

Kevin Friedrich in der Northland Zeitungr – Neuseeland

Kevin Friedrich
Der Wochenendreporter von Weekend Lifestyler, Andy Bryenton, hat am vergangenen Wochenende den Akkordeonisten Kevin Friedrich in einem zweiseitigen Artikel vorgestellt. Kevin reist zweimal jährlich von seinem Zuhause in New York nach Dargaville, Neuseeland, wo er in den ersten Jahren seines Lebens lebte, um Konzerte für die lokale Gemeinde zur Unterstützung des Dargaville Museum zu organisieren.

In diesem Jahr bedeutete Covid-19 jedoch, dass das Konzert abgesagt werden musste. Seitdem ist Kevin in Neuseeland geblieben und konnte sogar ein kleineres kostenloses Minikonzert veranstalten, um der örtlichen Gemeinde und den wichtigen Mitarbeitern für ihre Hilfe und Unterstützung während der Virensperre zu danken.

Das Dargaville Museum beherbergt auch Akkordeon Edelsteine ​​von Kevin Friedrich - Eine Meistersammlung von Akkordeons durch die Zeit. Dies ist die einzige Ausstellung dieser Art in der südlichen Hemisphäre.

Von alten Flutinas, die fast das ursprüngliche Akkordeonpatent von 1829 hatten, über elektronische Instrumente, kleine Kinder bis hin zu Konzertmodellen in voller Größe, Knopf- und Klavierakkordeons und vielen anderen zeigt das Display die faszinierende Entwicklung des Akkordeons. Siehe Bild unten von einigen Exponaten.

Kevin ist zuversichtlich, dass die Bestimmungen der Regierung Covid 19 NZ es ermöglichen werden, dass sein Weihnachts-Extravaganza-Konzert am 22. November 2020 im Museum Lighthouse Function Center stattfindet, bevor er in die USA zurückkehrt.

As the UK event, organised by the National Accordion Organisation of the United Kingdom, was cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak, India from Milton Bridge near Edinburgh, Scotland decided to record several videos, featuring the pieces she planned to perform in three different categories, and share them with Accordions Worldwide.

ATAM 58th New England Virtual Music Competition – USA

NE logoThe Accordion Teachers Association of Massachusetts (ATAM) held their 2020 New England Virtual Music Competition recently with over 800 entries competing virtually.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the association was unable to hold this event at the Boston Marriott Newton in March this year, and had to transition to a virtual competition. This event usually draws 2,000-3,000 people over the competition weekend.

With this transition to a virtual competition, the students who had worked so hard to prepare their competition pieces were still able to perform.

The competition included categories for accordion, bass, drums, guitar, piano, voice, and violin players for students and adults.

The Accordion Teachers Association of Massachusetts (ATAM), which sponsors this event, also distributes cash awards and scholarships. This year’s annual music scholarship was awarded to Miriam Felzenstein (a student of Carol Adamski-Maggi’s at Falcetti Music).

New Article: 40 Years after the Dream Came True - 1980 Coupe Mondiale

1980 Coupe Mondiale letterhead
Coupe Mondiale booklet cover1980 Historical website Report, Pictures and Results at: 1980CoupeMondialeHistory

"Could we in New Zealand, host the Coupe Mondiale? Would it not be a great event both for New Zealand and the accordion?" These were questions posed to a group of New Zealand Accordion Association (NZAA) committee members in the late 1970s by prominent Auckland lawyer, Gerald Ryan, who was a keen supporter of the accordion movement, with several of his children learning the instrument. With added encouragement from Harley Jones and his father Allan, both of whom had considerable contact with overseas accordion organizations, it became first a feasibility study and finally developed into a definite project.
