This past June, the Radcliffe Choral Society (RCS) embarked on a groundbreaking tour to Indonesia, traveling to four cities on three different islands. This tour was both the first time RCS had traveled to Southeast Asia since 1967 and the first time any American collegiate chorus had toured Indonesia. One of the main goals of our tour was to learn, grow, and facilitate cultural exchange and understanding with local communities. In doing so, RCS extended beyond their comfort zones to fully embrace and learn from the multi-faceted nature of Indonesian society.
