The Athenaeum's 21st Annual Summer Festival
2019 Gustavo Romero Plays Beethoven's 32 Sonatas
Sundays, June and July 2019
June 30 & July 7, 14 & 21
All Concerts begin at 4:00 p.m.
We are pleased to announce the dates for the 21st Athenaeum Summer Festival, a series of four of concerts that will feature the first part of Beethoven’s 32 sonatas. The second part will follow in 2020. The festival will be set in the intimate Joan & Irwin Jacobs Music Room of the Athenaeum.
For 20 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 20 years or have yet to experience the wonder of this artist—who plays from memory—you will not want to miss our upcoming 21st 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 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.
