What Are POP Chats?
The Hasty Pudding Club will play host to a new, recurring program, a coffee chat / interview series open to members, alumni and, pending space, limited guests, which will seek to celebrate and explore the careers and experiences of those interviewees who take part.

Q&As will be held at the Hasty Pudding Club house in an intimate, closed setting. Members and other guests will have opportunities to take part in a friendly discussion with the artist(s) about their experience in the industry.

We hope to create frequent spaces for members of the Club, Theatricals and Kroks, as well as Harvard and Other Boston-area students to engage with the music industry, through this program. Look forward to future announcements of artists and music professionals coming to speak at the house!
