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.
The Harvard Glee Club and Radcliffe Choral Society are caroling around Harvard Yard this holiday season!
As the holiday season is quickly approaching, RCS and HGC alumnae/i are invited to join the men and women of HGC and RCS in festive caroling around the Yard, followed by a cider/hot chocolate reception at Holden Chapel.
Sunday, December 3, 2017
4:30-6:00 PM – Meet at Holden Chapel to Carol around the Yard
