The Harvard Pierian Foundation is comprised of alumni and friends of the HRO. As an independent student group, the HRO depends on the Pierians for support funding a variety of initiatives including orchestral retreats, summer tours, music rentals, instrument repairs, and social events. The Foundation also provides guidance to the student leadership of the HRO and acts as the institutional memory of the orchestra.

The Foundation is going through a growth stage and is about to launch an ambitious new effort to increase its support for the HRO. If you’d like to be involved we welcome potential new board members and other supporters. Please be in touch with Foundation president Jim Nuzzo by emailing
