Dear Friends,

Happy New Year!

I will host Ghanaian Female Principal Drummer Antoinette Adwoa Kudoto here in Minnesota from April 15-29, 2024. She will teach in MUED 5621 African Performing Arts in Education and MUED 5301 classes and perform with our students on April 21, 2024, at Ultan Recital HALL. I could only invite her to Minnesota by allowing you to work with her. 

Please let me know if you'd like to join us for rehearsals and perform with us during the week of April 15, 2024. The rehearsals will run from 5:30 pm until 7:00 pm. I will provide more information on that later. 

Alternatively, if you would like to invite her to your schools, districts, or community arts groups, please do not hesitate to let me know.
