Jose Romero

Jose Simerilla Romero, born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, has been praised for his “remarkable bright ringing tone”, and “charming comedic quality” by the Orlando Sentinel and has been called “a promising young tenor”, and “one to keep an eye on” by critics. He received his Music education from Valencia College, Stetson University, Houston Grand Opera’s Young Artist Vocal Academy, the Vienna Summer Music Festival, Berlin Opera Academy, and has recently been accepted into the Los Angeles Domingo-Colburn-Stein Young Artists Residency Program.

He began his vocal training specializing in Classical and Romantic repertoire under countless world renowned and critically acclaimed professional vocal coaches such as Plácido Domingo, Stephen King, and Joyce Didonato in her illustrious masterclass series at Carnegie Hall. Mr. Romero has competed in a wide variety of National Singing Competitions like the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, the Deborah Voigt International Vocal Competition, the NATS National Student Auditions, and the Greatest Composers International Music Competition.

Mr. Romero has sung as a soloist in many choral associations like the FMEA (Florida Music Education Association) and ACDA (American Choral Directors Association), and has performed in multiple operatic roles and productions with many of Central Florida’s most prestigious theatre and opera companies like Opera Orlando, Central Florida Vocal Arts, Orlando Light Opera, The Space Coast Symphony Orchestra, Opera del Sol, First Coast Opera, and EMMA Concert Association.

Recent performances include, Rodolfo in La bohème, Dr. Blind in Die Fledermaus, Count Danilovich in The Merry Widow, Captain Tarnitz in The Student Prince, King Kaspar in Amahl and the Night Visitors, Albert Herring in Albert Herring, Ottone in L’incoronazione di Poppea, and Gabriel Von Eisenstein in Die Fledermaus.

Mr. Romero crafts his own dream in music and the performing arts, with a commitment to authenticity as his guide. “There are millions who have great voices, but they don’t sing with heart, singing with heart is the goal,” he says. “Anything less is cheating the audience.”
