Zimfest (and more) Online

Greetings all,

Here are some updates on online activities hosted by Zimfest and others:

  • You still have time to register for our final online presentation in June: Tendai Muparutsa will be sharing about his experiences teaching a world music ensemble at Williams College this Saturday June 20 at 1 PM Pacific Time.
  • More presentations will be forthcoming in July and beyond, and we’ll announce them after making some changes to our registration and tracking system. Meanwhile, we are wondering if any of you would prefer other times than the 1 PM Saturday time slot. If so, please comment on this post, or write to us at online{at}zimfest{dot}org with your suggestions. It’s not easy to fit into everyone’s schedules!

    Greetings, lovely Zimfest community~ Thank you for featuring the Black Freedom Concert! FYI, in addition to streaming on Facebook, the concert will (according to the Eugene Weekly) be live-streamed on Studio 541’s YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAG6igPZ0IuW1wpE58eorSA. Check out the EW article about the event: http://eugeneweekly.com/2020/06/18/to-zimbabwe-with-love/ Also, RatieD performed yesterday for Eugene’s Hult Center Happy Hour! (I believe) a recording will be posted on the Hult Center Facebook Page. Love, Hilary
