Brookline Music: Piatigorsky Foundation

Brookline Senior Center Concert

You better save the date, because the Brookline Senior Center will once more be hosting a Piatigorsky Foundatoin concert on Wednesday, October 9 at 2:00 pm. What is the Piatigorsky Foundation, you ask? Well, the organization is named for the renowned Russian cellist Gregor Piatigorsky, who believed that music should not be considered a luxury for the elite few, but a necessity of life for all. The Foundation focuses on making live classical music an integral part of everyday life for communities throughout the United States.

This year, the concert will feature cellist Evan Drachman and pianist Richard Dowling.
