Mary Tokarski

Honorary Director 2015!

We are most honored to have Mary Tokarski as our 2015 Honorary Director! Mary is a treasured performer, beloved instructor, author, and friend to all. Mary has set the bar high for decades. She performs both nationally and internationally as a soloist, with symphony orchestras, with string quartets and as a member of The 'K' Trio. Mary has released two solo CDs, “Music with Mary . . . with My Friends!” and “Music with Mary . . . for My Friends!” – both of which received international acclaim. Mary is also a published author and has done much to promote music in early childhood – carrying the accordion forward to new generations!

For 20 years Mary served as Director of Music Education at the Tokarski Music Center in North Haven, Connecticut. Along with teaching piano and accordion at her home in Northford, Connecticut, Mary travels extensively presenting Workshops and Master Classes on musical excellence, coaching privately, and as a sought-after adjudicator for national and international juries. She also served for many years as a Music Educator in the North Haven Department of Education's Early Childhood Development Program at Green Acres Elementary School.

Currently, Mary serves on the Board of Directors for The American Accordionists Association (AAA) and is a member of the Accordionists and Teachers Guild, International (ATG). Make sure you attend at least one of Mary’s outstanding classes and catch her powerful and captivating performance as we honor one of America’s great accordionists!
