A Land of Music: Alumnae Chorus Tours Cuba

Marjorie Swett

Marjorie Swett ’72 traveled to Puerto Rico with Smith Alumnae Chorus’s trip to Puerto Rico last summer and was quoted in the Grecourt News:

Marjorie Swett ’72, a Washington, D.C.-based clinical social worker who was a government major at Smith, had visited other Latin American countries before. But she said it was really “a privileged experience to spend time in a country that’s making a transformative transition.”

The tour prompted questions that Swett continues to ponder. “I’ve been thinking about a government’s obligations to society,” she said, “and especially about how a government can go about raising the floor for so many without lowering the ceiling so much that other things are forfeited, like personal dreams, and more freedom to make choices for the direction of their lives.”
