Little Bridges Organ Loft

IMG_6101Bridges Hall of Music (aka Little Bridges) on the Pomona College Campus draws audiences for concerts throughout the academic year. The beautiful venue also hosts weddings. Last month while playing for a wedding, I got to view the hall from the organ loft, a perspective not everybody gets to see.

Many times have I sat in the balcony, admiring the ceiling, and now I enjoyed this particular view of the intricate woodwork above.

The Hill Memorial Organ was dedicated in 2002, many years after the opening of the hall in 1915.

As long as I was walking around upstairs, I enjoyed the views out of the second-story windows.

Renwick House Relocated

In the dark of night between Sunday and Monday, the Renwick House moved across College Ave. to make way for the new Pomona College art museum. There are photos of the move on Facebook, as well as this video from the Claremont Courier. David Allen wrote about it in his weekly column of the Daily Bulletin. Here are my before and after photos taken in the daylight.

View from Bonita Ave. looking south.

Here today. Gone tomorrow.

Ready for the house, and looking at the new west-facing Renwick House.

The sign on the door is a little understatement. It say’s We’ve Moved. I don’t think the letter carrier will be using that mail slot too soon.

Here is a past post with another before photo of the house. Here is the post about the removal of the cottages next door to the Renwick House.
