Welcome!

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.
