New England Digital Accordion Orchestra
The New England Digital Accordion Orchestra is the nation's first-ever digital accordion orchestra.
The New England Digital Accordion Orchestra is the nation's first-ever digital accordion orchestra. The Orchestra was organized and is conducted by world-renowned music educator Sam Falcetti. Roland V digital accordions, which first appeared in 2004, are a far cry from the old family “squeeze boxes”. They reproduce virtually every musical instrumental sound through a technology that's as versatile as it is portable. One accordionist aptly described this instrument as “an orchestra in a box!”

The New England Digital Accordion Orchestra performs in many genres including jazz, standards, classical, big band, Broadway, ethnic, country, and rock. The Orchestra may sound like a brass band, a full-out symphony, marching band, or a classic Big Band. Each accordion is capable of playing two or more “instruments” at the same time, even varying the volume of each. The ensemble is complemented by drums, percussion, guitar, and vocalists. The Orchestra currently features more than 20 players representing four of the six New England States.
