A large number of events, especially regional events are still going ahead and the Accordions Worldwide Weekly News will continue to keep you informed of these.

Please keep emailing us at: cjmusic@outlook.co.nz with details of your upcoming concerts, CD releases, competitions, festivals, performances etc.

We wish all our readers good health and happy times with their accordion.

On Sunday, March 8, 2019 we attended a fascinating, informative, entertaining and excellent event sponsored by the Philadelphia Chapter of the Lithuanian American Community, Inc.

We were attending the 30th Anniversary of Lithuanian Independence celebration with a concert by Tutto a Dio with Augustinas Rakauskas (accordion), Greta Staponkute-Rakau (viola) plus Neringa Radenaite (soprano), a fabulous, virtuosic performance by all three.

Additionally, there were choral and dance presentations by the Lithuanian community. All ages performed ranging from a children’s choir with the youngest being three years old, adult choir, and dance groups of all ages.

The Lithuanian Ambassador to the United Nations opened the program. An informative film highlighting the contributions of Lithuanians to all fields of life was shown. The people who attended were mostly from the local Lithuanian community and are very proud of their heritage.

Augustinas, speaking his native Lithuanian, introduced the selections in a friendly manner. The beginning of his program was very dramatic and impressive. The three musicians entered from the back of the hall, each one performing as they walked down the aisle to the front of the stage. Included in their program were native folk songs which the audience sang to. Even though we could not understand the words, the feelings expressed were very loving and emotional.

Augustinas and Greta share, “This year (officially on March 11) is the 30th Anniversary when Lithuania has regained its independence. Our goal for this 30th Anniversary of Lithuania is to make Thirty-Concert tour. This includes additional concerts in Switzerland and Lithuania too. One club had to cancel at the last moment so this is why you can see only 29 concerts on the list: 2020Anniversary.pdf

The Importance of Early Age Music Education - Italy

Francesco PalazzoVideo: Francesco Palazzo explains the crowdfunding campaign – Italian speech with English subtitles.

A crowdfunding campaign for purchasing small accordions for children aged from 3 to 10 years old is currently underway organised by Francesco Palazzo (picture left). Francesco believes the ideal age to begin music lessons is from 3 to 6 years old, however there are few classical accordion models available that are suitable for children of this age group. In addition instruments are too expensive for a small child.

Francesco Palazzo would like to design a special model of accordion suitable for these young children in kindergarten and primary schools. They will be entirely Made in Italy.

The aim is to manufacture and hire these instruments out at a special low rate so parents do not have the expense of buying an instrument. The money received will go towards buying further instruments.

If you would like to support this project, they will treasure your help which will not only support the development of the accordion, but also many young musicians of the future.

George performed regularly in the USA and was a guest at the 2015 National Accordion Association Convention in Plano, Texas where he skillfully demonstrated the Moschino free bass system.

At the convention he also took part in the Arlyn Visentin’s 15 Minutes of Fame, and performed Prelude & Fugue in C Minor, The Holy City and Canzone per Sonare No. 2 (in duo with Bob Mansfield) at the Saturday evening concert.

He will be sadly missed.

World Accordion Day - What are you Doing? - International

WAD header
WAD logoWorld Accordion day is on May 6th, which is the day the accordion was patented in 1829.

Every association, group, orchestra, performer and teacher, is asked to actively support this event by encouraging national and local accordion activities to happen in their country on this day or the weekend either side of Accordion Day if that should be more convenient.

Everyone can register their World Accordion Day activity on the website and send a report of their event after, for that website.

No event is too big or too small. ALL accordion events celebrating World Accordion Day are welcome. This is a CIA promotion for the accordion in which every accordion enthusiast can participate and help bring our accordion world together as well as strongly promote the accordion.
