Praise for TCF
at University of Michigan
Thank you for making the trek to our fair town. My students and I loved it.
Some testimonials from my fourth year students:
It was such an honor and pleasure to interact with the Third Coast Festival directors Julie Shapiro and Johanna Zorn!
These two women were extremely helpful in offering their creative advice on my project.
Julie and Johanna gave incredible ideas and insight to all of our diverse integrative projects. I found both of them to be very easy to talk to, and great discussions took place.
