Our events through the years...
Since 2005, The Friends of Beattie-Powers Place has been presenting music, lectures and educational workshops in its intimate, historic setting. The aim has been to serve a cultural and programing need for the village of Catskill and surrounding area. Over the years, how our calendar has grown!
Thanks to donor support, in 2019 we offered nearly 35 events at low or no-cost, for the enrichment and enjoyment of the community. We've presented performers such as pianist Dan Tepfer, saxophonist Noah Preminger, saxophonist Jerome Sabbagh with bassist Matt Penman and drummer Billy Drummond, and young talent from the Bard Conservatory Vocal Arts Program under the direction of opera legend Dawn Upshaw. Our lectures have included topics and experts such as landscape design with Peter Bevacqua, expert beekeeping with Linda Aydlett, and Major League Baseball history with John Thorn.
Everyone is welcome, and our audience has grown along with our calendar.
While the pandemic has obliged us to rethink our events, we're working to safely present online and distanced programming.
In the meantime, take a look back at some of the artists and experts who've delighted our audiences over the years!
