Meet our 2021 Summer Intern

Posted June 07, 2021 in Press Releases

Hello everyone, my name is Bryce Kessler (he/him), and I am thrilled to join The Well’s Leadership team as the 2021 Summer Intern. Over the next few months, I will be helping The Well track and organize our vast library of Mindful Music Moments audio files and educational materials in preparation for the upcoming academic year. Speaking of academics, I’m a senior double major in Arts Management & Entrepreneurship and Theatre: Acting/Directing at Baldwin Wallace University with aspirations to become an Artistic Director of a non-profit that combines community arts and sustainability.

I’m a proud native of Cincinnati and have been playing piano and cello regionally for over ten years. I’ve had the honor of making music alongside the likes of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, CCM Philharmonic Orchestra, Baldwin Wallace Symphony Orchestra, and the OMEA Southwest Regional Orchestra. Since my childhood, I’ve had a deep love and appreciation for classical music. Some of my favorite pieces to close my eyes and listen to include Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto No. 2, Symphony No. 13: Babi Yar, Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite, and Adams’ Short Ride in a Fast Machine.

Recently, I was the Administrative Intern for the Canton Symphony Orchestra, where I spearheaded new educational and community engagement collaborations with local nature centers, art museums, and senior homes. I am genuinely looking forward to working with Stacy, Rowe, and everyone else at The Well as we prepare to make a creative difference for students, teachers, and families through classical music.
