The Girl Choir is proud to welcome the Radcliffe Choral Society of Harvard University on their spring break tour of the southeast. Admission is free, and a freewill offering to will be collected.

The Radcliffe Choral Society was founded in 1899 by the first President of Radcliffe College, Elizabeth Cary Agassiz, and is the oldest women’s collegiate choir in the nation. President Agassiz called upon Marie Reuter Gallison, the first conductor of the Choral Society, to establish RCS in order to “give the chance to join in singing with others to every Radcliffe student who wished to do so.” The Radcliffe Choral Society proudly upholds this legacy today through its rich tradition of choral music, celebrating the community formed through “singing with others,” and sharing its joy of collaborative music-making with audiences around the world.

One of only five Harvard organizations continuing to bear the Radcliffe name, the Radcliffe Choral Society is proud to honor its history and legacy by celebrating excellence in women’s choral music and the extraordinary community formed through its music-making.
