Music to Save Our Endangered Lands, Vols I & II

Just released! Volume II

Music and the outdoors can profoundly move the human spirit.

The Lowell Trio wonderfully celebrates that connection with Music To Save Our Endangered Lands II, a new CD of favorite concert works that follows their hugely successful first release last year. Members of the San Francisco Opera Orchestra for over 25 years, oboist Janet Popesco Archibald and cellist Emil Miland, along with Skyline College faculty accompanist pianist Margaret Fondbertasse are generously donating all proceeds to John Muir Land Trust.

$20 of each purchase is a tax-deductible donation that helps JMLT to permanently preserve more beautiful places throughout Alameda County and Contra Costa County for recreation, wildlife habitat and scenic views. It is an irresistible offer to lovers of music and the land!
