Student poster inspired by "Spirit of the Mountain Stream"

Do you want to adopt me?

Adoptions are incredible experiences!  In 2018, I celebrate with students and teachers in Buffalo, NY.  Previously, I've joined the musical families of Pullman, WA and Maumelle, AK.

The concept is simple.  I am your "composer-of-the-year".  Throughout the school year, students study a piece of Rossi music and learn about a living composer. We interact through email with questions and answers as students learn firsthand about the life of a composer and the creativity behind the music. At the end of our virtual time together, we can plan a personal visit for a final festival of celebration. This can involve a number of events from music sessions and masterclasses to recitals and poster contests.  An original commissioned piece can also be part of this event. Each adoption is unique, and creative potential is endless. 


Let's talk!

Commissions as part of adoptions include:
