Donate/CDs

Please donate to the Rossini Club’s Scholarship Fund:  As you know, the cost of college for today’s students has greatly increased. To nurture and create the next generation of fine musicians, it is vital they get the support they need to complete their education. Please help us to help these budding musicians pursue their dreams!

 

Purchase recordings to benefit the Rossini Club’s Piano Fund: We also are pleased to offer for purchase several recordings of pianist Richard Roberts (1933-2016). Richard was a long-time Rossini Club member and an integral part of the southern Maine music community. You may purchase the recordings as a CD or digital download(mp3). The proceeds from the sale of these recordings will go towards the Rossini Club’s piano fund – for upkeep and maintenance of the Steinway pianos Richard loved to play.
