Member Expectations

Performing Members

Concerts are about an hour, without intermission, on Sunday afternoons. Four performers or ensembles are usually programmed per concert allowing about 10-15 minutes for each performance. Longer performances can usually be accommodated when discussed with the program chairperson.

Concert attire is semi-formal.

Solo performers are encouraged to perform by memory, but are not required to do so.

Portland Rossini Club ordinarily does not pay its members or guest artists to perform.

For more information contact the program chair.
