In my 4 spring breaks at Yale, I have been whisked away to Japan, Hawaii, St. Louis, Colombia, and Ecuador. As a member of the Yale Alley Cats and the Yale Whiffenpoofs, it was always exciting to find out where our next performance tours would lead us.
This spring, the Yale Glee Club took me (and almost 80 Glee Club members!) to Florida and Cuba. While it felt like a vacation, we also participated in meaningful cultural exchange, singing with the best choruses in Cuba like Coro Entrevoces, Coro de Camara de Matanzas, and the Carolina choral groups.
Even though it’s a break, Yalies never stop doing awesome things, even at home. Here are a few postcards from some of my friends’ awesome breaks.
Sammy, BR ’17 | Chicago (home!)
“After visiting some family in Boston, I headed home to Chicago where I visited local high schools as a Yale Student Ambassador and spent time with family and friends. Here are some high school students learning about Yale!”
Eddie, BR ’17 | Puerto Rico (home!)
“ ‘Villa Marina’ in Fajardo, Puerto Rico houses dozens of boats that are used for recreational fishing. It is utterly impressive watching all of them depart and return together at sunrise and sunset.”
Sonya, TD ‘15 | Bermuda (Mixed Company a cappella performance tour)
“Mixed Company hanging out in some Bermudian phone booths and on Horseshoe Bay Beach over spring tour in Bermuda!”
Here’s MixedCo in Bermuda, one more time!
