    By chance will the Quincy Troupe and Michael Warr event only be in person, or accessible via zoom, or recorded for future on-line viewing. Thanks.for any info.

      Hi Juliana,
      All events except those listed in the virtual programs section are in-person only. So, yes, this program will only take place in-person. It will be recorded and posted to our YouTube page at a later date though. Thanks for checking, please let us know if you have any additional questions.
