Harvardwood

The Harvardwood Film Festival presents a sneak-peak screening of Last Night, a new film by Massy Tadjedin ’99, in Los Angeles on May 5, the night before its official release. A Q&A with Tadjedin follows the screening. Also in Los Angeles, in June, Harvardwood Music inaugurates its Storytellers series, bringing artists together to share their musical journey through conversation and/or song. Up first is a conversation with CHESTER FRENCH sensation D.A. Wallach ’04.

The New York City chapter sponsors a conversation with Brooke Hayward, author of the classic Hollywood memoir, Haywire, on May 4, and a performance by lyric tenor Ray Hornblower ’70 on June 2. 

Harvardwood’s annual reunion event is back! Join fellow Harvardwood members for drinks, food, and memories at Tommy Doyle’s in Harvard Square on May 28.

Radcliffe Choral Society Foundation

Join us during reunion week on May 26, from 4-6 p.m. at Paine Hall, for a group sing, free and open to all RCS alumnae. We’ll be singing favorite RCS repertoire from across the decades—conducted by the new director of choral activities, Andy Clark. Whether you graduated in the 1930s, the 2010s, or anywhere in between, we’d love to hear your voice! Friends and family are welcome; there will be seating for them to watch and listen.
