$20 suggested general admission each day

Thank you for your support!

Celebrate Spring at Beattie with a weekend of great music! We were thrilled to offer this outdoor event presenting classical & jazz players: classical artists from Bard Conservatory and the Broad Street Trio, and jazz artists presented by Planet Arts. Thanks to the incredible support by donors Alan Gosule and Nina Matis, we are able to hold this event outside under a large tent, on Beattie's lawn. Attendees joined us for stunning views overlooking the Hudson and a celebration in music.


Distanced, both under and outside the tent, general admission. Face coverings and social distancing required. The show will go on, rain or shine, and we can’t wait to see you!
