Recently nominated for the Marie Taglioni European Award as "Best Conductor", Myron Romanul is one of the most fascinating and intriguing musicians on the music scene today. His passion and enthusiasm for music has given him the ability to bring people from many different types of arts and backgrounds together to produce spectacular performances that have moved audiences as well as bring critical acclaim.

Born in Baltimore, Maryland, he comes from a musical family and is the grandson of Stella Roman, former leading dramatic soprano at La Scala and the Metropolitan Opera. Through her experience, he studied opera with her and was able to gain the insights and traditions of opera. He began studying piano and memorizing orchestral scores when he was six. Raised in Boston, Romanul has studied with, and performed with the best. He was featured with the New England Conservatory Ragtime Ensemble on the Angel-EMI recording Scott Joplin: The Red Back Book, which won the 1973 Grammy Award for "Best Classical Chamber Music Performance". He studied conducting at the New England Conservatory of Music, the Boston University School of Music and the Berkshire Music Center at Tanglewood with Seiji Ozawa, Gunther Schuller and Joseph Silverstein. His long association with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, working with Ozawa, Kurt Mazur, Arthur Fiedler and John Williams, to mention a few, has been a strong influence in his growth as a conductor. After conducting orchestras such as the Central Massachusetts Symphony Orchestra, the Pro Arte Chamber Orchestra and the Boston Ballet Orchestra, he moved to Germany where he has served as Kapellmeister and Associate Music Directors in various opera houses in Stuttgart, Karlsruhe, Mainz and Essen. He has also guest conducted throughout Germany, including Munich, Bonn, Heidelberg, Darmstadt, Leipzig, Dresden and Halle as well as orchestras in Italy, Japan, China, Korea, Turkey, Iceland, Norway, Australia, Venezuela, Brazil and Romania. Romanul was a major force in the successful Fairbanks Summer Arts Festival in Alaska with his creative 16-year run as Music/Artistic Director. His recently released CD, "The Piano of the Opera" has won critical acclaim. 

He is currently Conductor at the Nationaltheater Munich, Germany, where since 1987 he has been leading performances of the Bayern State Opera and Ballet. In addition he is Principal Conductor of the Massachusetts Symphony Orchestra and Guest Conductor at His Majesty´s Theater in Perth, Australia, and the Opéra national du rhin, France. In addition, he is "Artist in Residence" at Wesley College in Perth, Australia.

His theater experience extends from opera to operetta through ballet and musicals to big bands. Through his leadership, unique expression and generosity one can’t help but share his joy and pleasure in all genres of music.
