Student Stage for 2018
“The Cotati Accordion Festival 2018 is a great time to introduce the student stage to the thousands of visitors who will attend. It is an opportunity to hear fabulous accordionists on the main stage who studied the accordion as a youngster. As the Coordinator for the Cotati Accordion Festival’s Student Stage competition and Scholarship Fund, I have compiled some biographical sketches of accordionists who want to share not only their talents but their own story of growing up learning the accordion. They are all inspired players who were fortunate to have great teachers, too.” – Sheri Mignano Crawford, Student Stage Coordinator
