Antonio Romo

Contemporary solo pianist and composer

Invite me to play

Have you ever thought about hosting a private recital for your friends? How about motivating your employees with a cultural event or celebrating a special occasion with your family? Maybe you would like to raise funds for your church or school. You name it. I can play for practically any audience in the United States, Canada or Mexico.

My fees are reasonable and my conditions are basically three: a tuned up piano in good shape, a chance to sell my CDs during/after the event, and my travel expeses paid.

My fees

My standard fee is $500 per concert, but I can make exceptions depending on specific situations. If you are interested in booking me for an event but you are hesitant about being able to cover my fees, please contact me. We might be able to find the middle ground where we both benefit somehow.

Tuned up piano

Of course I would prefer to play in a grand piano, but I don't require one if getting it is not possible. An upright piano will be enough in most cases as long as it is in good shape (every single key and pedal working fine) and recently tuned (within a week for house and formal concerts or within three months for public settings).

CD sales

Please allow me to set up a table where I can sell my CDs after the event. This is a great way for me to share my music as well as getting financial support to keep working on it. I will not try to convince any of the attendees to buy my music. I just ask for the opportunity to have it available for those who are interested.

Travel expenses

If you live in West Houston or Katy, Texas you don't have to worry about this. If you live within 50 miles of Katy (for instance, The Woodlands), please consider offering a small donation to cover for the cost of gas. For any other places, I would need to have my travel expenses covered (plane ticket, car rental, and hotel). I don't require anything luxurious (first class airfare, fancy leased car, or five-star hotel) as long as things are clean and safe. Please contact me well ahead of time to agree on these conditions as you might want to share other questions or suggestions. I try to be as flexible as possible.

Other considerations

There are several important aspects that need to be considered and clarified a few weeks before each event. For example, I need to know where it's going to take place, if it's for a certain charity, the type of stage you have in mind, and the approximate number of people attending. Please contact me ahead of time so we can discuss these details or if you just want to ask for additional information before considering an event.
