Harvard's premier

symphony orchestra, the HRO is student-managed and professionally-conducted, performing four times a year in historic Sanders Theatre. 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.
