Widows Reunite

Alum and student members of the Wellesley Widows perform during their 75th anniversary celebration.

The Wellesley Widows, the College’s oldest a cappella group (and one of the oldest in the country), celebrated its 75th anniversary with an on-​campus reunion weekend March 8–10. More than 50 alums and their guests attended. The event culminated in the student group’s spring concert, pictured here, featuring the alums as the “guest group.” “Many of the returning singers remarked at how easily they ‘fit back together’ both socially and harmonically after many years apart. Even those from differing decades remarked on how their longstanding traditions made the group feel like a multigenerational family,” says Darcy Kupferschmidt ’12, WCAA associate director of alumnae engagement and wife to a ’13 Widow.
