The Romeros

The world-renowned Romeros, a veritable institution in the world of classical music, will perform at 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 20, at Johnson County Community College.

The performance in Yardley Hall will feature world premieres written for the Romeros and Spanish favorites. A pre-show talk will take place at 7 p.m. featuring Paul Laird, professor of musicology at the University of Kansas.
The legendary Celedonio Romero, with his sons Celin, Pepe and Angel, founded the ensemble known to millions as “The Royal Family of the Guitar.” With the introduction of Celin’s son, Celino, into the quartet in 1990, and Angel’s son Lito joining his father in duo recital, the Romeros have encompassed three generations of concert artists.
“Collectively, they are the only classical guitar quartet of real stature in the world today; in fact, they virtually invented the format,” The New York Times has stated.
Celedonio Romero, who died in 1996, was a renowned soloist in Franco’s Spain. Over the years, the Romeros have appeared virtually at every major symphony orchestra in the United States. In 1983, they appeared at the Vatican in a special concert for Pope John Paul II, and in 1986 they performed before Prince Charles of Wales.
