July Zoom Lectures With Senior University

Brazilion Music concert

Here are the Zoom lectures confirmed for July so far. If I am able to organize any additional lectures, I will send out those details as soon as possible. You do not need to register for any of the classes below; however, be sure to add the Zoom app to whatever device you plan to use prior to joining your first lecture. If you are able to test out Zoom to get comfortable with it, I really recommend that too if it is your first time. I hope to “see” you all there!
