Online registration is open!

May 12, 2018

What a wild ride since registration opened! As of today we have 192 registrants for Zimfest 2018. At first glance it may look like most marimba workshops are already full, but there are plenty of spaces available on Sunday. A lot is happening on the final day of the festival, so make your plans to stick around until Sunday evening to take advantage. In the ten weeks before registration closes, keep your eye on this space to see any new classes on offer, marimba or otherwise. We also encourage you to step out of your comfort zone into singing, dance and introductory mbira classes. In consultations with our teachers, we have made a few adjustments to skill levels of three workshops in order to make them accessible to more students. See announcements of these and all future workshop changes in the right-hand column.
