Peter Yarrow to perform at Goshen College March 15

GOSHEN — Musician, songwriter and activist Peter Yarrow from Peter, Paul and Mary will be performing a solo concert of his songs on civil rights, human rights and peace at Goshen College Music Center’s Sauder Concert Hall March 15 at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets cost $20 and can be purchased at the college’s Welcome Center by calling (574) 535-7566, e-mailing welcomecenter@goshen.edu or visiting goshen.edu/tickets. Proceeds from the concert will further Operation Respect and the Wi’am Center for Peace and Conflict Resolution in Bethlehem, which is directed by Zoughbi Zoughbi. Zoughbi is the father of Goshen student Marcelle Zoughbi.

According to GC staff, Yarrow’s performances weave a narrative of his life in music and politics, punctuating the major events with renditions of iconic songs. From his life in Greenwich Village in the 1960s, his connections to Bob Dylan and Pete Seeger, and his career as part of the Peter, Paul and Mary trio, according to college staffers, Yarrow shares a part of American history influenced heavily by music.

In addition to his music, Yarrow has also focused social justice and equity in society. He founded Operation Respect in 1999, a program designed to build safer and more respectful environments for school children worldwide. On behalf of Operation Respect, Yarrow has appeared, pro bono, in concert all over the world.

Yarrow indicated he is not about to give up the demanding path he’s chosen.

“We’ve lived through a time in which people have felt they could forge their own future and make a better world,” he said. “We may not have achieved our dreams in the timeframe that we once believed was possible, but the magnitude of what is yet to be achieved only confirms the importance of our commitment. This is a crucial time in U.S. history, where the avenues of possibility are opening up like never before. Knowing this, we can’t stop now.”

 Presentation

Yarrow and colleague Mark Weiss, director of Education for Operation Respect, will make a public presentation March 15 at 10 a.m. during the college’s convocation in the Church-Chapel about Operation Respect, their anti-bullying organization, which advocates interpersonal peace in education.
