“A Touch of Crass”
Velma Claptrap (Mazurka Wojciechowska) earned her music degree, graduating cum laude, from the American Conservatory of Music with a degree in voice performance. Besides singing in more than a dozen languages, she is a skilled accordionist, appearing all over the Chicago area. She has concertized in Poland, Slovakia and the Czech Republic and even sang for a very drunk mayor of a tiny village in Romania! You can hear her play at Klas Restaurant in Cicero, IL. She would like to thank her (now deceased) voice teacher, Wilma Osheim, and her former accordion teacher , Juliano Milo, for making her practice.
