One of the most remarkable things about the Octet is its large, very active, and surprisingly handsome family of alumni. Each year alums from various classes (mostly graduates from the past 15-20 years) make the pilgrimage back to Williams to celebrate Sing-Ins and Homecoming with the current group in the fall and the legendary Winter Study Pub Crawl in January. Every other year on Homecoming day, the Octet alumni congregate in full from locations across the world and graduating classes spanning over 60 years to sing a reunion concert, eat a meal together, have a drink together, and recall past misadventures. These reunions are a big deal. The next will fall on the group’s 75th anniversary year, Homecoming 2015 – more information to come as the date draws closer.
