AWAM 宣布 Dick Contino 庄园的到来 - 美国

AWAM logo
Dick Contino世界手风琴博物馆 World of Accordions Museum (AWAM) 自豪地宣布 Dick Contino的庄园即将到来,这是该博物馆的一项重要里程碑事件。这位20世纪40年代的偶像和风靡全国的万人迷激发了无数人对的手风琴对热情,激励了成千上万的有志之人,并极大地促进了手风琴业的发展。

Contino won the hearts of American audiences after winning Horace Heidt’s talent contest with his version of “Lady of Spain.” Thereafter featured on major television shows, his public performances drew extraordinary audience numbers and unprecedented income. His name became, and remains, one of the most prominent in American accordion history.

His brilliant virtuosity and charismatic stage presence regularly thrilled Las Vegas audiences even into his advanced years. Contino died in 2017 at age 87.

Mrs. Judy Contino has declared her intention to donate a significant portion of her husband’s estate in order to draw ongoing public attention to the legacy of his contributions to American culture. In addition, for our 2020 World Accordion Day festival she committed to presenting a 45-min. talk to include unpublished excerpts of Dick’s life, some with humorous anecdotes that portray the real person who was more than a world celebrity.

所宣布的捐赠包括录音,照片,已出版和手稿形式音乐以及各种杂物。 其中一个将是真人大小的人体模型,并配有他在拉斯维加斯表演时穿的表演服装。这个人物将作为音乐厅的一个新的焦点,在我们的特别展览区展出。
