Diane Marie & The Elegant Accordion

Based in Kennewick WA

Diane's accordion music is well suited for conventions, corporate events, private celebrations, dinner parties, seasonal gatherings, festivals and Oktoberfests. Make your event a memorable occasion with the Elegant Accordion.

Diane was classically trained to play the accordion in Chicago by Herb Granquist, founder of the Imperial School of Music, and she eventually taught his youth accordion band. She currently teaches the accordion to both youth and adults emphasizing the necessity of playing technically correct and performing. Diane is an active member of the Tri Cities Chapter of The Washington State Music Teachers Association and the Northwest Accordion Society. She is also a member of the Accordion Teachers Guild and the American Accordion Association.

The music for your event may be selected from one of Diane’s many genres or combinations that you may request. French, German, Irish, Italian and Russian. Also American standards, patriotic, spiritual, light classical, holiday programs and more.

Diane performs with a Petosa Leggera acoustic accordion and a Roland digital accordion. When performing in a large venue or at an outside event, both instruments can be amplified using a Bose tower amp.

If you are not familiar with a digital accordion, this instrument accurately replicates all of the sounds of orchestra instruments. Close your eyes and you can imagine a symphony orchestra or a Polka band including a drummer.
