Peggy Falcetti and her husband, Sam, opened Falcetti Music in Springfield, Massachusetts in 1957. Since that time, Peggy and Sam have been very active in many community music programs. Peggy has served as the chairperson of the New England Music Festival since 1977. The festival is sponsored by the Accordion Teachers Association of Massachusetts for which Peggy and Sam have supported for over fifty years. While she ran the books for the store for many years, she is very proud that her son Tony took over the company operations.
