At Frank Marocco Memorial Concert in Castelfidardo Italy (May 2012)
Castelfidardo is a small town in the Marche province of Italy and is the home of the accordion, where all of the great accordions in the world have been made for approximately 150 years now. This was Frank Marocco’s home base when he was touring Europe and beyond as that is where the Victoria Accordions factory dwells and where his manager Elke Ahrenholz lives.
It was very appropriate that Elke create a concert of Victoria Accordion artists in the Teatro Astra in the middle of town and I was fortunate to be invited to perform at this concert.
I was among many great accordionists and other great musicians and I will always treasure that experience in honor of Frank Marocco.
