Lakeshore Players Theatre: The Romm Trio
White Bear Lake, MN 55110
This beautifully charming family from Sarasota, Florida, The Romm Trio, have enthralled enthusiastic audiences in the U.S. and around the world. The Trio consists of Ronald Romm, his wife Avis and their son Aaron. Playing songs drawn from the works of such compositional giants as Beethoven, Debussy, Ravel, Gershwin, Puccini, Verdi, and Bizet, the Romm’s demonstrate a flair for their own unique arrangements, producing some wonderfully lyric and expressive musical moments, and capturing the essence of melody and accompaniment in each one they play. Most of their songs may not have been written for the two instruments of piano and trumpet alone, but as Avis Romm explained to audiences, perhaps composers like Debussy, “didn’t realize how well they had written for the trumpet!”’
The group of two trumpets and piano is unique and creates interest and expectations, which will not be disappointed. The Romms are known for their wonderfully warm interaction with the audience and the methods with which they provide some levity throughout their performance.
