A program of passionate and uplifting Spanish guitar music by Spain’s most beloved composers: Gaspar Sanz, Enrique Granados, Domenico Scarlatti, Manuel de Falla, Isaac Albeniz, Celedonio Romero, and more!
Celino Romero is a member of the legendary Royal Family of the Guitar – Los Romeros. Many of us have had the honour of watching Pepe Romero, Celino’s uncle, play in Victoria many times over the years. Pepe and the late Celedonio Romero (Celino’s Grandfather) both hold honorary doctorates from the University of Victoria, and the Romero Family has strong connections to our lovely city.
When Celino Romero joined the all-family Classical guitar quartet, Los Romeros, in 1990 he ushered in the third generation of the group’s esteemed history. Established by Celino’s grandfather, father and uncles in their native Spain, Los Romeros have been performing together since 1960 for audiences worldwide. The New York Times regards them as “The Royal Family of the Guitar.”
