Who is this Aaron Romm...?

Currently Lecturer of Trumpet at University of Kansas School of Music, trumpeter Dr. Aaron Romm has had the distinct pleasure of performing throughout the United States, Mexico, and Europe. Prior to his move to Lawrence, KS in August of 2023, he served as Co-Principal Trumpet of the Sarasota Orchestra (FL) for the 2021-2023 seasons. His freelance activities have led him to appear with the Omaha Symphony (NE), Jalisco Philharmonic Orchestra (Guadalajara, Mexico), Sinfonia da Camera (Champaign, IL), Champaign-Urbana Symphony Orchestra, Baroque Artists of Champaign-Urbana, Peoria Symphony Orchestra, Illinois Symphony Orchestra, and the Venice Symphony (FL). 

As a soloist, Aaron has performed throughout the United States, Mexico, Europe, and South Korea. 

Aaron most recently performed as a soloist with DeSota Baroque, co-founded by violinist Dr. Sun-Young Shin and organist/harpsichordist, Dr. Martha Stiehl. Prior to the pandemic, he premiered Lee Norris's "A Gershwin Medley" with the Whiting Park Festival Orchestra. Other highlights of his ever-so-humble solo performances include premiering is own arrangement of "Carnival of Venice" with The Venice Symphony, followed by J.S. Bach's famous "Brandenburg Concerto No. 2" with the Sarasota Orchestra in December of 2018, and, yes, another one of his arrangements of "Carnival of Venice" with the Puertorrican Brass Ensemble, during the 2019 Puertorrican Brass Festival.  

Prior to his appointment at University of Kansas, Aaron conducted masterclasses throughout the United States, Mexico, Belgium, France, Brazil, South Korea, and in Spain, he lectured at the inaugural International Trumpet Congress at the Conservatorio Superior de Música Salvador Segui de Castellón. Aaron is incredibly proud to have also joined the trumpet faculty for the 2023 Rafael Mendez Brass Institute in Denver, CO, and performed in the world-renowned Summit Brass. Prior to that, Dr. Romm served as Adjunct Instructor of Trumpet at State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota, in addition to serving as a regular coach for music programs in the Sarasota-Manatee area.  Prior to his move to Florida, he taught at Illinois State University and the Conservatory of Central Illinois.

Chamber music has always held a special place in Aaron's heart. He regularly performs with the Romm Trio, alongside his parents, trumpet legend Ronald Romm and Steinway Artist Avis Romm. They have dazzled audiences internationally with their deeply engaging and warm concert experiences. Since 2019, they have been adding to their list of video and audio recordings, which began with "Showdown at the Hoedown", a piece written for the Romms by Charles Reskin, as well as Aaron's arrangement of J.S. Bach: "Toccata and Fugue in D Minor" (BWV 565).  If you want to see and hear more of their work, head on over to Aaron's YouTube channel, or subscribe here.
