Mary, Mario and the Hudson Valley Accordion Ensemble performed at the renowned Kittle House in Chappaqua, NY on Sunday, February 23, 2020.

The Hudson Valley Accordion Ensemble was the featured performer at the cocktail hour reception for the Westchester County Doctors of Distinction Awards, held at the Surf Club in New Rochelle, NY.  Many thanks to WestFair Publications for coordinating the event.


A fun time was had by all as Mary & Mario hosted a get-together for some of Mario’s students (and their spouses) on Sunday afternoon, January 8, 2017.  Mario’s students arrived, accordions in hand, and each played one of their favorite selections!  Mary prepared appetizers and dinner, paired with delicious wines and scrumptious desserts. The musical segment ended with Mario playing some favorites, and, in celebration of the Epiphany, Mary sang “O Holy Night.”

Good friends, food, wine and music – who could ask for more!

Jiaxin Tian recently appeared on Fox5 news in New York, and is on her way to do a concert tour of China and Korea.

Mary & Mario performed together with Jiaxin, playing different genres of music, with Mary singing “I Love You China”. The collaboration brought back fond memories of Mary & Mario’s two trips to China.
