karcicAccordionists Dominic Karcic (Commack, NY) and Ray Oreggia (Syosset, NY) have been playing and studying Valtaro Musette music since their teen years. Dominic’s love for the Valtaro Musette music was instilled in him through his years of study with noted Valtaro accordionist Peter Spagnoli. In recent years Dominic has been involved in the preservation and documentation of this musical style. Over a period of years both Dominic and Ray have been doing concerts / presentations / lectures on the Valtaro Musette music. These include presentations for the American Accordionists’ Association (AAA), Connecticut Accordion Association (CAA), Maryland Accordion Club, the Washington Metropolitan Accordion Society (WMAS) and the Istria Women’s Club (Astoria, NY).

Dominic collaborated in writing a biographical article on the life and career of accordionist John “Scudlein” Brugnoli (founder of the Valtaro Musette Orchestra) which was published in the Gazzetta di Parma (Parma, Italy) on September 10, 2002. This article was the basis in 2008 for an extended work (Tutti Mi Chiamano Bionda) on accordionists from the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy by columnist Caludio Bacilleri (Bologna, Italy) who writes for ER Magazine (Emilia-Romagna Magazine). Several of Dominic’s articles about Valtaro Musette music were also published on the Borgo Val di Taro web-site in August and September of 2005.

Their musicial performance of Valtaro Musette repertoire is interspersed with a history of the style.
