How We Celebrate Spring at Beattie-Powers Place

It was an event-filled weekend at Beattie-Powers Place with a lecture on Saturday and a recital on Sunday. Both events packing our double parlor.
Saturday's lecture by Dr. Joseph Matta, The Agony and Ecstacy, was a combination of three presentations that offered a provocative survey of the history, incidence and treatment of addiction in America.

Dr. Matta is a new village resident who specializes in Psychosomatic Medicine at Long Island Jewish Medical Center. Among his many credits, Dr. Matta is a member of the American Society of Addiction Medicine, Academy of Psychosomatic Medicine and American Academy of Medical Acupuncture. He is a diplomate in Psychiatry and Psychosomatic Medicine through the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and in Addiction Medicine through the American Board of Addiction Medicine.

He shared several examples of how traditional Chinese medicine had been effective in reducing pain with his patients and applied acupuncture to one lucky attendee with a migraine on the spot. She left the event relieved, making a compelling example for the rest of us.

Thanks to these talented students for a memorable
Sunday at Beattie-Powers Place!
Sunday the house was filled with Sonatas for another Bard at Beattie event.  No less than seven terrifically talented students from the Bard College Conservatory of Music entertained attendees for nearly two hours.  For classical music lovers, our Bard at Beattie series is not to be missed!

Up Next!

Save the date and bring along a friend for a very special performance on Saturday, April 12th at 5pm by pianist Sebastien Cornut. Tickets are $20 and reservations are encouraged. Email us here to place your reservation today!
