Found in 1869 in Portland, Maine, the Rossini Club is the oldest musical club in the U.S. Originally including only female members, the Club began accepting men in the 1980’s. With a diverse membership including more than 30 skilled instrumentalists, pianists, and vocalists, the club has a rich history of members performing classical music to an enthusiastic following of music lovers. Concerts take place on the third Sunday of the month.
The Rossini Club’s members include music teachers, professional musicians and avocational musicians who audition for the opportunity to polish old favorites or learn new music, perform in front of enthusiastic audiences and to just enjoy playing or singing with their peers. Non performing members are welcome too. Become a member now!
The Rossini Club holds an annual scholarship competition for students who are Maine residents and registered as music majors at any accredited music school, college, or university for the Fall semester of the year they are applying. Categories include vocal, instrumental, and piano, with prizes awarded. The competition takes place the beginning of June. Thanks to the continued generosity of our donors, the total prize amount for each category may amount to more than $2,000.
