SHS grad tours with Harvard choir

Published: Wednesday, April 3, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

Veronica Behrens, a 2011 Sycamore High School graduate, will be among the students touring throughout the Midwest this spring with the Radcliffe Choral Society of Harvard University.

Behrens is a sophomore at Harvard University majoring in archaeology. She is a soprano in the choir.

The 40-voice all-female Radcliffe Choral Society was founded in 1899 by the first president of Radcliffe College. The group is one of the oldest and most preeminent women’s choirs in the U.S.

The choir regularly performs throughout the year in solo and combined concerts, hosts a quadrennial Festival of Women’s Choruses, and embarks on yearly tours each spring to domestic locations and to international destinations every fourth summer.
