RCS/HGC 1964 North American Tour 50th Reunion Concert

Join us on Sunday, September 28, 2014, from 11am-noon, for the RCS/HGC NAT 50th Reunion Concert at the Episcopal Divinity School Chapel (99 Brattle St., Cambridge, MA 02138).

In the summer of 1964, after three years of planning, a group of 90 singers and 3 conductors (Elliot Forbes, Cecelia Miles Riddell, and Archie Epps), embarked on a five-week, 26-concert tour. Highlights included performances with the Cleveland Symphony in Severance Hall under conductor Louis Lane; the Ravinia Festival Orchestra at Ravinia Park under Seiji Ozawa; the Vancouver Symphony at the Queen Elizabeth Theater under Dr. Charles Munch; and the Boston Symphony at Tanglewood under Eric Leinsdorf. This is the 1964 North American Tour’s 5th reunion, and each one has evoked ever more memories for alumni as they sing favorites from the tour program.
