Chloé Zhao has made Oscar history. 

On Sunday, Zhao became the first woman of color and the first woman of Asian descent to earn Best Director at the 93rd Academy Awards.

The Nomadland director is also only the second woman to win the award. The first was Kathryn Bigelow, who won the award in 2008 for her film,The Hurt Locker. 

"This is for anyone who has the faith and the courage to hold out to the goodness in themselves and to hold out to the goodness in each other, no matter how difficult it is to do that," she said in her acceptance speech. "You inspire me to keep going."

But Chloés victory didnt stop there. She also took home a second Oscar when her film, Nomadland won for Best Picture.


We could not be any prouder of Chloé, and we look forward to her next film projects such as, Marvel's upcoming Eternals and Universal Studiosci-fi Western of Dracula.




Vespers 2021


Mount Holyoke Club of Boston’s Bi-Annual Vespers Concert

Friday, December 3, 2021 at 8:00 p.m. ET


The Mount Holyoke Club of Boston and the Western Suburbs invites you to the second virtual Vespers concert! 

Together with President Sonya Stephens, student musicians and the Music Department, we welcome our global community of alums, students, parents, faculty and staff to join us for an online streaming of the bi-annual Boston Vespers concert. 

For many alums, Vespers on campus was one of Mount Holyoke College’s most treasured traditions. Every other year, the entire performance comes to Boston for an incredibly special concert in the heart of Boston’s Back Bay, at Old South Church.

If we learned anything in 2020, it’s planning for any possible outcome. Because the College doesn’t yet know what the 2021/2022 academic year will bring for its student community, we’ve decided to take the Mount Holyoke Club of Boston’s Vespers 2021 event virtual.

Online ticket sales will begin later in 2021, so for now, just add it to your calendar and plan your viewing party!
