Trustees of the Pierre Monteux School & Music Festival are pleased to invite all area residents to our Open House on Friday June 17, from 4-6 p.m. at 13 Melody Lane in Hancock, the site of Devenish Hall, our new campus dormitory. Snacks and beverages will be provided by The Bangkok and Best Wines.
We are pleased to acknowledge the many gifts of Philip and Phoebe Devenish – including a major gift to fund its move, siting, and renovation – by naming the School’s new dormitory in their honor. A gift from the Bagaduce Music Lending Library in Blue Hill, the four modules of the former classroom building were moved to Hancock in early November and have been under renovation since then.
Devenish Hall will house twelve students in six twin rooms. It includes a lounge and kitchen, washer and dryer, its own well, separate double lavatories for men and women, an on-demand water heater, three showers, wheelchair access, and a lovely deck overlooking the fields around the Forest Studio.
For many years Phil and Phoebe could be relied on to engage in tasks that few others would have agreed to undertake. Devenish Hall is a very significant, but only the most recent, example of their generosity, time, and love for the School. We are confident that many scores of future students will enjoy the results of this wonderful gift.
Please come and invite your friends!
