Summer Festival Series | Gustavo Romero Plays Schubert: The Complete Piano Sonatas
July 23 @ 4:00 pm$192 – $450
We are pleased to announce the dates for the 24th Athenaeum Summer Festival, a series of four of concerts that will feature pianist Gustavo Romero.
For 23 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. Whether you have been with us all 23 years or have yet to experience the wonder of this artist—who plays from memory—you will not want to miss our upcoming 24th Summer Festival.
Romero, a native San Diegan, 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 will be offered at the Athenaeum after the first and last concerts (July 2 and 23) providing 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.
