Grayson Masefield

For Grayson, we could say, the accordion is in his genes. Grayson was born September 10, 1987 to two accordion-playing parents. Now what chance do you think this child would have of NOT playing the accordion? Grayson Masefield actually began playing the accordion at the tender age of three. Besides having two accordion-teaching parents, he grew up playing in the North Shore Accordion Orchestra and went on to begin his classical training at Auckland University and then on to France with the famous Frédéric Deschamps.

Grayson, in 2009, became the first person ever to win the prestigious Coupe Mondiale Virtuoso Classical and the Coupe Mondiale Virtuoso Entertainment awards in the same year back to back. Grayson had become a sought-after musician and has performed in many European countries including France, Spain, Germany, UK, Finland, Portugal, Slovakia, and Italy. He has also performed in Canada, the USA, Russia, Lithuania, Portugal, China, New Zealand, and Australia. Then in 2010 he won the Trophée Mondial Classique World Accordion Championships and has since retired from competitions. He has become a sought-after concert artist and presently continues his studies majoring in music at the HEMU – University of Music, Lausanne, Switzerland.

We are thrilled to have this young energetic world-class performer join us again this year at our 18th Annual Convention. Grayson will surely astound you with his talent and musical entertaining prowess.
