In addition to pre-recorded panels and performances, several live Family Days presentations can be accessed via Zoom below. Feel free to view them "in the moment" or afterward, as most will be recorded.
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 23
7:30 pm - Zambezi Marimba Band
9:00 pm - Williams Jazz Ensemble Small Combo
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 24
While Family Days is necessarily "virtual" this year, we're pleased to offer these online windows into your students' experience and opportunities to hear from faculty and staff who help your students learn and grow. "Your Student's First Year," "What's Up in Class," and "What's Up Besides Schoolwork" are panel discussions informed by questions we received from many of you in advance. The presentations in the purple bar are live, and a few require advance registration: rest assured that we'll add recordings of these live events once they're done.
