The American Romantics were founded in 2017, inspired by the extraordinary and forgotten artistry of musicians from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Working closely with the Yale Collection of Historical Sound Recordings, our performers uncover the stylistic performance practices of the Romantic-era. Following these discoveries, we offer concert programs that invite the audience's imagination to travel back in time to enjoy the music of favorite composers such as Tchaikovsky, Chopin, Rachmaninov, Mahler, among others, with new perspectives on the aesthetics of a past time period. 

Currently, the ensemble performs a resident concert series in the ballroom of the New Haven Lawn Club, in New Haven, Connecticut. Lead musicians regularly perform throughout the continent, and recently were featured presenters at the University of Oxford in Great Britain. 

Through its partner ensemble, the American Baroque Orchestra, the American Romantics receive tax-deductible contributions as a 501(c)(3) non-profit. To donate, visit:
