Athenaeum Summer Festival
October 10, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 7:30 pm$55
22nd Athenaeum Summer Festival, a series of four of concerts that will feature pianist Gustavo Romero.
For 21 years, the Athenaeum has presented unforgettable festivals featuring virtuoso pianist and San Diego native Gustavo Romero performing the complete piano repertoire of a specific composer.
Romero first performed at the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library as a young boy, and it was with him that the Athenaeum planned its first Summer Festival in 1999, the organization’s 100th anniversary. Each year, Romero chooses composers to study in depth, sharing the full range of their artistry.
Dinners are offered after each concert in private homes or at the Athenaeum. The dinners, offered immediately following each concert in private homes or at the Athenaeum, are an opportunity for concertgoers to socialize, meet Mr. Romero, and share a delicious meal. All concerts begin at 4 PM at the Athenaeum. Priority seating will be given to Donor level members and above, and to dinner guests. Whether you have been with us all 21 years or have yet to experience the wonder of this artist-who plays from memory-you will not want to miss our upcoming 22nd Summer Festival.
