The Civic Orchestra of Victoria
Brian Wismath, Music Director presents:

STRUM - Featuring Guitarists Celino Romero, Alexander Dunn, Randy Pile & Robert Ward  (June 😎

Strum (June 8 features four world-renowned guitarists, including Alexander Dunn and Celino Romero, performing two monumental works for guitar(s) and orchestra by Joaquín Rodrigo. Rodrigo's powerful compositions are heavily influenced by Spanish Impressionism and Baroque musical styles. The Concierto Andaluz was commissioned by Caledonia Romero (founder of "The Royal Family of the Guitar" - Los Romeros), grandfather of Celino Romero who will be performing this work, providing an extraordinary opportunity to experience the legacy of the Romero family.

Romero and Dunn will be joined by Randy Pile and Robert Ward to perform Concierto Andaluz. Dunn will also perform Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez for solo guitar and orchestra.

Celino Romero & Alexander Dunn

"With Victoria having such a strong connection with internationally renowned guitarists, a unique opportunity presented itself to include Alexander Dunn and his long-time colleague, Celino Romero, as part of Civic Orchestra's Strumconcert. It was an obvious choice to feature two Rodrigo guitar concertos, one of which was written for the founder of Los Romeros." - Brian Wismath, Music Directorhttps://civicorchestraofvictoria.us12.list-manage.com/track/click?u=0b248721603bd92491d4989ab&id=e62b692171&e=d780be76c4
