The buzz is building -- BPP is the place for great music in a very special setting.

If you were at Beattie-Powers Place on Sunday, you know -- Sebastien Cornut's performance was a triumph, earning a standing ovation from one of our largest audiences ever.  The program was a revelation, moving from the more familiar (Bach's "French Suite in G Major" and Beethoven's "32 Variations in C Minor) to the magical and unexpected, including Ligeti's "Arc en Ciel" and "Bourree Fantasque" by Chabrier. A reception followed, and the crowd lingered to enjoy conversation, wine and cheese, late into the afternoon. Our thanks to all who attended (cars all the way out to Prospect Avenue, and yes, we had to break out the folding chairs to accommodate all of you). It is deeply gratifying to know that the audience for events like this is not only appreciative, but growing. And our special thanks to Sebastien, a great talent and generous performer. We hope we can persuade him to return next year!
