Concert for Newtown

Concert for Newtown features performances by Peter Yarrow, Dar Williams, Bethany Yarrow & Rufus Cappadocia as well  as Newtown’s own Flagpole Radio Cafe that includes Francine and David  Wheeler, the parents of 6-year-old Ben, who died at Sandy Hook Elementary  on December 14, 2012. Musical performances are interwoven with interviews of Peter Yarrow and Francine Wheeler by Bill Moyers. The concert is a deeply moving, tearful yet also joyful event, filled with love and a powerful sense of the Newtown community’s commitment to fulfilling the Sandy Hook Promise-- that is, to be remembered not as the place where tragedy occurred but as the place where transformational change began.

I fully believe that this concert will touch the heart of America. It  was a most remarkable night, one that shows who we can be when we act with courage and allow our hearts to be open to one another, says  Peter Yarrow, a former member of folk music trio Peter, Paul and Mary, and founder of the non-profit anti-bullying organization, Operation Respect.
