A big thank you to all our treasured donors

Our new piano will be a lasting reminder of your generosity, and we couldn't have purchased it without the help of each and every one of you. We were delighted to see so many of you at our Donors Party on Saturday (and missed those who couldn't attend). Maryna Kysla's brilliant performance of Bach, Brahms, and Rachmaninov made it a truly memorable event and proved the merits of the piano, which will be enjoyed by performers and audiences alike for years to come. It was a beautiful day, inside and out, and we hope to celebrate many more with you.  

Many thanks to our friend and donor David Allen for his excellent photos!

A packed house for our first Planet Arts Jazz one2one concert

Heartfelt thanks to pianist Bruce Barth and bassist Sean Smith for their virtuoso performance. Beyond being spectacular musicians, we were touched by their comments about the special atmosphere we all experience at Beattie. And a shout out to Tom Bellino, creator of Planet Arts, which works with artists and educators to explore the creative process, and bring new cultural experiences to diverse audiences around the world. Bravo! Make note: Jazz one2one returns on May 23rd.
