Jazz takes center stage at Beattie, Saturday March 28

Tickets: $10

Our first-ever jazz event stars pianist Bruce Barth and bassist Sean Smith of Jazz one2one, PlanetArts' program devoted to presenting world-class musicians in intimate settings. 

When we say "world class," it's no exaggeration. Internationally recognized as composers, recording artists, and teachers as well as extraordinary musicians,

Bruce Barth has performed with Branford and Wynton Marsalis, Art Farmer, the Mingus Big Band, Stanley Turrentine…the list goes on and on... including Tony Bennett, who said of him, "I have a great love for excellent musicians, and Bruce Barth is one of my favorites."

Sean Smith has performed with an equally long list of jazz greats, including Gerry Mulligan, Benny Carter, Clark Terry, Lee Konitz, and Bill Charlap. "The arrangements are cool, the ballads moody and gorgeous. Both sophisticated and emotional, intricate and uncluttered. It reveals richer artistry with each encounter," raved AllMusicGuide.

Join us for an unforgettable evening, but be sure to reserve at

Our deep gratitude to all our Piano Fund donors

Your generosity made it possible for us to purchase a fine instrument that will bring years of pleasure to our audiences. It's a significant improvement that will allow our performers to be even more dazzling, too. So once again, our thanks for your continued support, and for those who contributed $250 or more, you can look forward to a special Donors' Event in April, with a recital by the wonderful pianist, Maryna Kysla, to follow.
