The Athenaeum Music & Arts Library’s Summer Festival with pianist Gustavo Romero has become a cherished tradition in San Diego. The 2014 Athenaeum Summer Festival, the 16th, has been announced. This summer, well-known pianist Gustavo Romero will return for a four-part concert series, celebrating composer Ludwig van Beethoven.

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. All concerts begin at 4:00 p.m. at The Scripps Research Institute.
