Ronald Romm was a founding member of the world-famous Canadian Brass, performing with the group since its inception. A trumpet virtuoso without peer, he was voted one of the ‘Top 12 Brass Players of the 20th Century’ by Brass Bulletin Magazine and is an internationally recognized virtuoso, recording artist and teacher. Though born in New York, he considers himself a native Californian - he was a child prodigy who began his career as a soloist at the age of ten. After establishing a career in Los Angeles, then New York City – where he attended the Juilliard School, Ronald Romm joined the newly formed Canadian Brass and spent nearly thirty years with the history making group. In June of 2000, he retired from the group after participating in well over 4,500 concerts, 60 recordings, numerous television concert specials, videos, and hundreds of master classes. He continues to tour worldwide, is an in demand clinician for Yamaha and is a Professor of Trumpet at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Today, he is frequently accompanied by his wife Avis Romm on piano, to form a formidable duo.
