Parrish Parlors Piano Dedication

The dedication ceremony of a newly restored Steinway piano in Parrish Parlors featured performances by students, faculty, and alumni, including Andrew Hauze '04, director of the Swarthmore College Orchestra.

A newly restored, nearly 100-year-old Steinway 'O' piano is now ensconced in Parrish Parlors. The dedication ceremony this fall featured performances by Associate in Perfomance Andrew Hauze '04 (solo at 14:40), Joyce Han '13, Corey Silberstein '12 (8:25), Visiting Instructor in Educational Studies Elaine Allard '01, Professor of Physics Carl Grossman (24:45), and Visiting Professor of Peace and Conflict Studies George Lakey (31:22). "The quest for this piano began at least two years ago," said Maurice Eldridge '61, vice president for college and community relations at the event. "It is a wonderful, gracious piece of community life to have this at Swarthmore as a resource." Videography by Mahandra Rodriguez '12
