An Introduction To Our Bryn Mawr Home

 

In 2011, the Cellospeak Annual Workshops for Adults found their new home at Bryn Mawr College in Bryn Mawr, PA.  With a stunning campus and ample accommodations, Bryn Mawr is the perfect setting for all of our lessons, classes and performance activities.

 

Bryn Mawr (pronounced “brin-mar,” which in Welsh means “big hill”), founded by Quakers in 1885, is one of the Seven Sister Colleges and the first in the country to offer a PhD to a woman. The campus, long recognized as one of the nation’s most beautiful, is set in a century-old suburb eleven miles west of Philadelphia. The majestic stone buildings that anchor the campus were the first examples of the style of architecture that came to be known as “Collegiate Gothic” and have been Cellospeak11_06_6212.jpgcopied throughout the country. These 125-year-old originals here on the campus of Bryn Mawr are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, so we will be enjoying the rarified (but air conditioned) air of academia at its most dramatic and classical.

 

The Gothic buildings, immaculately manicured grounds, stone walls, vaulted ceilings, stained glass windows, massive doors (most of which open surprisingly easily) make a setting for us that is like a trip to England or a Harry Potter movie set. The residence hall has elevators and air-conditioned sleeping rooms. The residence hall also has a very large hall which, as of the summer of 2013, has become our private dining facility.  The dining facility is a cafeteria with many selections to suit needs and tastes, with lots of fresh foods and well prepared dishes.  They will gladly accommodate special diets with advance notice; sadly, there is no all-day ice cream bar.  A magnificent Gothic building next door houses air conditioned spaces that we use for cello choir, group lessons, teaching and vendor spaces.

Our evening recitals are held in a small, elegant, truly historic hall with vaulted ceilings and the trappings of the Renaissance.  Our Friday evening concert is held in the “Great Hall” with almost unbelievable elegance.  Please make sure that before you come that you have a proper end-pin-stop to help preserve the 125-year-old floors, and be sure to bring a stand light because the chandeliers are a long way away.  The campus is vast, but CelloSpeak participants have taken great care to achieve the closeness, joy and comradeship that we’ve worked so hard to build and maintain between participants and faculty.

 

The setting is pure joy itself, and we will surely make beautiful music there!
