Music to Save Our Endangered Lands

Music and the outdoors can profoundly move the human spirit.

The Lowell Trio present a selection of some of their favorite concert works in a new CD that wonderfully celebrates that connection while supporting open spaces in the East Bay. 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 your 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!
