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 will be traveling in the Pacific Northwest from January 13 – 21, 2017 and stopping by Seattle, Tacoma, and Portland! It will be ten years since the choir has toured the region and they are excited to go back. RCS is looking forward to reconnecting with alumni and immersing themselves in the region’s choral tradition.
Although they don’t have specific dates by city yet, they would love to hear from local friends and alums, especially if they would be able to provide homestays for students. If you would like to get in touch with the tour team, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
