Please correct my year of departure. It was 1966. I served two terms in Ethiopia. The first was in Jimma where I taught music, French and English and also composed music for two plays we produced with our high school students in the Amharic language. My second term was spent in Addis Ababa at the Creative Arts Centre at the Haile Sellasie University. There I was director of Orchestra Ethiopia.
