Finley Romano is the director of outreach for the Northwest Sacred Music Chorale and a Spokane native. He is active in the regional music community, singing with the Spokane Choral Artists, Opera Coeur d’Alene, and NWSMC. He is the first openly transgender member of each of those ensembles, and is probably the first professional trans opera singer in the state of Washington. Romano is, by his own admission, some bizarre and delightful amalgam of Russian Orthodox and Wiccan. He self-identifies as a witch with Talmudic morality. To be honest, he has no idea what his spiritual leanings are and is content to explore them as he continues a decidedly inclusive outreach campaign with the Northwest Sacred Music Chorale.
Romano is currently writing a book, For My Great Size, which details his experiences transitioning from mezzo soprano to bass-baritone.
