His artistry, dazzling technical command and sensitivity have brought Stanislav "Stas" Venglevski increasing acclaim as the world's foremost virtuoso of the Bayan, a type of accordion.
Stas' repertoire includes original compositions, a broad range of classical, contemporary and ethnic music. He has toured extensively as a soloist throughout the former Soviet Union, Canada, Europe and the United States, including numerous performances with Doc Severinsen and Steve Allen, many US symphony orchestras and on the Prairie Home Companion Show.
The brilliant artistry and musical virtuosity of Stas offers an expanded dimension in music and an innovative musical adventure to the audience. Beyond his artistry, Stas is a consummate entertainer capable of engaging any audience.
This event is presented in partnership with the 92Y as part of the 7 Days of Genius Festival, a global festival celebrating the power of genius. For one week, people around the world come together to discuss, debate and incubate new genius ideas to improve lives everywhere. Come celebrate the genius of a virtuoso whose creativity and mastery of the Bayan is an inspiration to audiences around the world.
