Meet our student board!
HRO is one of the largest organizations on campus and also has a complex structure due to its nature as a student organization at Harvard, an official Harvard class (Music 10 and Music 107), and a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit. HRO values its structure as an entirely student-run organization, but that also means that there is lots of work to get done! Responsibilities of HRO board members include program and poster design, social media and website management, ticket policy-making and distribution, stage management, accounting and budgeting, taxes, social event planning, community outreach event planning, international tour planning, and much more! HRO Board consists of an elected Executive Board of 8 members who oversee a general board of between 10 and 20 members depending on the year. Musicians in HRO say that the more involved in the orchestra you are, the more you get out of and appreciate the experience. Please email us if you are interested in learning more about any of these positions!
