Stas Venglevski, accordion

Internationally acclaimed accordionist will perform classical music, folk music from Eastern Europe and other parts of the world, and his own compositions. Stas may also perform American favorites such as Tea for Two, Moon River, Rocky Top, and others.

His artistry, dazzling technical command, and sensitivity have brought Stanislav "Stas" Venglevski, a native of the Republic of Moldova, part of the former Soviet Union, increasing acclaim as a virtuoso of the bayan (Russian accordion). A two-time first prize winner of bayan competitions in Moldova, Stas is a graduate of the Russian Academy of Music in Moscow, where he received his Masters Degree in Music under the tutelage of the famed Russian bayanist, Friedrich Lips. In 1992 Stas immigrated to the United States.

Stas is an accordionist, musician, arranger, entertainer and teacher. His repertoire includes his original compositions, and a broad range of classical, contemporary and ethnic music. He has toured extensively as a soloist throughout the former Soviet Union, Canada, Europe, and the United States, including numerous performances with Doc Severinsen, Steve Allen and with Garrison Keillor on the Prairie Home Companion. Additionally, he has performed with symphony orchestras throughout the United States. He is a regular participant with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra’s Arts in Community Education Program (ACE), has performed with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Tacoma Symphony Orchestra, has done television commercials, and has performed in theater productions. Stas has produced numerous recordings and has published several books of original compositions. Additional information about Stas and his music can be found on his website
