For many of us, memories of singing and touring with RCS are among the most meaningful of our Radcliffe and Harvard experiences. The Radcliffe Choral Society Foundation (RCSF) is dedicated to supporting the activities of the current Choral Society, strengthening the RCS community, and honoring our shared experiences and proud traditions.
RCS had a wonderful season with strong musicianship, presenting six concerts with repertoire including the Bach Christmas Oratorio, Verdi Requiem, and world premiere of The Things We Dare Not Tell, composed by Sin Young Park.
The season culminates with a 2-week tour of South Korea, with 10 days in Seoul and 4 days in Jeju Island, beginning May 26.
