Musicnet Summary to 24th April 2020


Kia ora tātou

It’s the end of another week on Musicnet. No doubt many of you will have zoom-fatigue, and your email inboxes are overflowing.

This summary is only a summary, and not every email that’s been through Musicnet. I encourage you to close your inbox throughout the day, to ensure you get work done!

To highlight two threads from the week.

Join other musicians around NZ to remember ANZAC day tomorrow morning at 6am by standing by your letterbox. Find out more details here, or the resource Juliet made.

All the webinar videos and digital notes from the last two weeks are up on the MENZA website. There are also a growing number of resources being added each week.
