In 2017, Romanza is pleased to welcome

Walt Whitman

“All music is what awakes within us
when we are reminded by the instruments;
It is not the violins or the clarinets –
It is not the beating of the drums –
Nor the score of the baritone singing
his sweet romanza; not that of the men’s chorus,
Nor that of the women’s chorus –
It is nearer and farther than they”

― Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass
