Dante A. Rosselli began studying piano as a child at NMS when it was located on Chapel Street in Wooster Square. The Rosselli home was full of music - classical and opera, but also jazz and pop. His grandfather was a composer and music teacher. Dante was around music from birth and he never lost his love for it.
The scholarship is intended to give the chance to students, who may not otherwise be able, to develop their love of music and playing music the way it developed for Dante.
