With unparalleled artistry and enduring vigor, the Juilliard String Quartet—celebrating its 75th Anniversary this season—​continues to inspire audiences around the world. Founded in 1946 and hailed by the Boston Globe as “the most important American quartet in history,” the ensemble draws on a deep and vital engagement to the classics, while embracing the mission of championing new works. Each performance of the Juilliard String Quartet is a unique experience, bringing together the four members’ profound understanding, total commit­ment and unceasing curiosity in sharing the wonders of the string quartet literature. Ronald Copes, former faculty member in UCSB’s Department of Music, has played with the Juilliard String Quartet since 1997. In May 2022, the Quartet named violist Molly Carr to its ensemble, filling the void left by the passing of Carr’s mentor and friend, much-loved violist Roger Tapping.

Her contribution to and impact on the world of classical music were recognized by the French government with admission to the Ordre National de la Légion d’Honneur (France’s highest decoration) at the rank of Chevalier (Knight). In her role as a passionate wildlife conservationist, Grimaud established the Wolf Conservation Center in upper New York State, which offers education about wolves, their relationship to the environment, and the human role in protecting their future.

Los Romeros
The Romero Guitar Quartet
“The Royal Family of the Guitar”

Celin Romero, Pepe Romero, Celino Romero, Lito Romero

Presented by CAMA and the Lobero Theatre Foundation
In Celebration of the Lobero’s 150th Anniversary
(February 22, 1873 – February 22, 2023)

Legendary Spanish guitarist Celedonio Romero left his native country in 1957 when his artistic freedom was jeopardized under the Fascist regime of Generalisimo Franco. The Romero family secured permission to travel to Portugal to visit a sick relative, and quickly booked passage from Lisbon to New York, then on to Los Angeles, eventually settling in Santa Barbara. In June 1958 Celedonio made his United States recital debut at the Lobero Theatre, returning the next year with his three sons, Celin, Pepe and Angel, each performing solo guitar works. Then, in April 1961, the family performed together at the Lobero as The Romeros. the first guitar quartet on the international concert scene. In 1990, Celin’s son Celino joined the quartet, when Angel left to pursue a solo career; and in 1996, Angel’s son Lito joined following Celedonio’s death that year. Thus three generations of the Romero musical dynasty have come to be celebrated worldwide over the past 60+ years as “The Royal Family of the Guitar.” The Romeros’s voluminous discography spans the entire repertoire of the classical guitar from the works of its earliest composers to those of today’s masters.
