The Harvard-Radcliffe Orchestra traces its history back to the night of March 6, 1808, when six
Harvard men first formed the Pierian Sodality, an organization dedicated to the consumption of brandy and cigars
as well as the serenading of young ladies. Its midnight expeditions were not confined to Cambridge, but extended
to Watertown, Brookline, Roxbury, Jamaica Plain, Boston, etc. wherever, in short, dwelt celebrated belles.
The Harvard-Radcliffe Orchestra, a student-run organization at Harvard College, will leave for Havana on May 27,
2011 for an Ode to Cuba tour, its first visit to Cuba in its 203-year history. Cuba trip attendees will participate
in four joint performances with local orchestras and choirs in Havana, Pinar del Rio and Matanzas.
