About Us


The Radcliffe Choral Society was founded in 1899 by the first President of Radcliffe College, Elizabeth Cary Agassiz, and is one of the oldest women’s collegiate choirs 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.” Read more →


RCS, as part of the Holden Choruses, holds auditions each year at the beginning of the fall semester. Auditions take place in two rounds; the first round is open to all undergraduate and graduate students at Harvard. Read more →


Tickets for all RCS events are available at the Harvard Box Office.
