Peter Yarrow — of the popular 1960s folk trio Peter, Paul and Mary — will perform a benefit concert in La Jolla on Friday, Feb. 28, 2020. The concert, to be held at a private home whose address will be identified only to ticket-buyers, benefits One Story at a Time and littlemercies.org, two non-profits that bring humanitarian aid and hope to refugees detained at the Mexican border. As you are about to read, the 81-year-old author of “Puff the Magic Dragon” — who spoke to the Light from his home in Manhattan — remains as committed as ever to his ’60s idealism, and has some very strong beliefs about what’s right for the future of this country.
In 1992, the mail received by La Jolla native Coleen Jan Paderewski drove her postal carrier insane with curiosity. He had never delivered an actual envelope from the White House to anyone before, much less two dozen in two weeks. Finally, the guy just blurted it out: “Who are you?!!” It can be safely assumed that the carrier was neither a big fan of classical music nor an American of Polish descent.
Best Bets for Events: Jan. 9-15, 2020 in La Jolla and San Diego include Japanese brush painting classes; J Company Youth Theatre presents “Mamma Mia!” musical; San Diego Early Music Society presents the ensemble Concerto Italiano; Salk Science & Music Series concert and talk; preview of San Diego International Jewish Film Festival; and screening from San Diego Italian Film Festival.
Only nine months after assuming the role of president/CEO of La Jolla Music Society (LJMS), Ted DeDee announced that his tenure will conclude at the end of the first season of The Conrad Prebys Performing Arts Center.
