Harvard Women’s Weekend Calendar

Join RCS, RCSF, and the wider Harvard community at a number of events at the beginning of November:

Harvard Women’s Weekend

Harvard University

This November, join fellow alumnae/i from across the University to celebrate Harvard’s inaugural Women’s Weekend, developed in close partnership with HAA Shared Interest Groups (SIGs). This weekend’s goal is to engender relationships with alumnae across Harvard, and to showcase those SIGs.

The Radcliffe Choral Society Foundation is working on organizing a sing on Saturday, November 5 – stay tuned for more information on when and where.

Join RCS and HRCM in celebrating the diversity in our musical lives and the common bonds of our shared humanity, on the first night of the Harvard Women’s Weekend. This creative journey across varied genres, cultures, and styles explores timeless themes of sorrow, unity, memory, ritual, love, and joy through song. HRCM and RCS will present the world première of “In the Name of Music” by Harvard alumnus Robert Kyr, alongside folk music, contemporary pieces, and other works.

A recommendation from the current President of the RCS Foundation and Director of Gift Planning at the LA Philharmonic, Susan Reardon.

Borda and Dudamel are widely credited with leading the most successful symphonic organization in the country, designing a forward-thinking and innovative approach to shaping the role of orchestras in the 21st century. Together, Borda and Dudamel have partnered to develop a portfolio of influential artistic and educational programs, including such high-profile initiatives as the in/SIGHT series, the most active commissioning program in the country and the El Sistema-inspired YOLA (Youth Orchestra Los Angeles).
