Dear Members and Alumni,

I have been to two performances recently at the Victoria Concert Hall -> and it is so lovely to see and hear live music again, with a packed audience!

We are also beginning to fill our event calendar with more interesting offerings; starting off with Harvard’s oldest a capella group - the Krokodiloes, who will be on their first international tour in two years!. They will be performing at Sundaram Tagore Gallery in Gillman Barracks, so we are combining art and music. This will be followed by a WWF ideas lunch on sustainable finance later on in June. Not to be a tease as such, but there will be more to come - social drinks with other alumni clubs, wine tastings, artist studio visits...… please keep your eyes out for more updates in our newsletter and facebook pages.

Much further ahead, we are also planning our Annual Dinner in November; again the first since 2019. Details of the date and venue will be finalized shortly.

Man is truly a social animal.

Best wishes,
Rebecca Woo
President, HCS
