Wright State students pay 100th birthday piano tribute to Irene Romanowski, longtime university music librarian

Irene Romanowski, a long-time music librarian at Wright State University who established a scholarship for piano students, made a return visit to campus to hear a special piano concert to celebrate her 100th birthday.

Two piano students and one alumna played pieces from Chopin, Schubert and Debussy in Schuster Hall in the Creative Arts Center on Dec. 20 as Romanowski sat on stage looking on. At the concert’s conclusion, Jackson Leung, professor of music, took over the piano and led well-wishers in the singing of “Happy Birthday.”
