Musical treat: Ukrainian-born cellist to share talents


Beletsky now teaches cello and chamber music at Indian Hill Music Center in Littleton and Andover Community Music School, while also providing private instruction in his studio in Andover. He continues to perform as a soloist and with chamber groups throughout the U.S. and Europe as well.

His concert at The Center at Punchard is free and open to the public. Karen Payne-Taylor, the center’s program coordinator, says she’s thrilled to be able to showcase Beletsky’s talents and is hoping people make a morning of it and stay for lunch. Those interested in lunch must sign up in advance.

For a sneak preview of Beletsky’s concert, check out the Summer Outdoor Grill Night at The Center tonight, June 20. Beletsky will be providing the entertainment for the event, which goes from 5 to 7 p.m. (last seating at 6:30). Tonight’s featured dish is salmon. All meals start at $5 and require an advance purchase.

Immediately following Grill Night, BoomerVenture Screening Room will showcase the film “Jiro Dreams of Sushi,” a Japanese documentary with subtitles, at 7 p.m.

Summer Grill Nights continue Thursday, June 27, again from 5 to 7 p.m., with steak tips as the featured dish. Rhythm Aires tambourines will perform. A screening of the French film “Romantics Anonymous” follows at 7 p.m.

Because the kitchen at The Center at Punchard is being renovated this summer, only two Grill Nights are planned this season.

To reserve a seat for dinner or more information on upcoming events, call The Center at Punchard at 978-623-8321.
