During the pandemic, we will be taking the opportunity to reflect on past productions and the many wonderful composers and musicians we have had the honor of collaborating with and the pleasure of presenting. Beginning today, we will post links to the work of these wonderful artists – one at a time, every 2-3 days – so that we can all watch, listen, and enjoy.

The Seattle Weekly
Guy Klucevsek is one of the world’s most versatile and highly-respected accordionists. Forget everything you thought you knew about the accordion.
If you ever get a crack at hearing him live, sell whatever it takes to raise the funds to get there!
A rebel with an accordion…Klucevsek combines poker-faced wit and imagination with command of his instrument, forcing you to re-think the accordion’s limitations.
The music expressed was complex, sly, virtuosic, and deeply felt and imaginative.
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Klucevsek is a musical Orient Express whose themes pass from Hungarian gypsy to Slovenian waltz to Middle Eastern wail without stopping at the borders.

Guy Klucevsek is a fantastic accordionist. It’s not just that he plays the accordion…it’s that he’s been able to distinguish himself playing the accordion. Typically an instrument as distinctive as the accordion pretty much steals the spotlight from anyone playing it. Klucevsek isn’t just an accordion onstage. He isn’t just a guy playing an accordion onstage. He’s Guy playing an accordion onstage.
The accordion doesn’t always get the respect it deserves, but when it’s played well it can be a thing of real beauty. Anybody who’s heard Guy Klucevsek can attest to that. He’s one of the instrument’s true greats, perhaps the closest thing the accordion has to an Eric Clapton.
