Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul, and Mary playing at UHM June 26th

HIMB's Community Education Program is collaborating with Ocean Matters to put on a concert at UH Campus Center featuring Peter Yarrow, a member of the popular folk-trio Peter, Paul, and Mary.  The group has created hits such as "Puff (the magic dragon)", "Leaving on a jet plane", and "If I had a hammer". 

Peter Yarrow is now a director of Ocean Matters, an organization dedicated to providing programs centered around marine conservation for youth and educators.  As a long-time advocate for marine conservation and education, he has donated his performance so all proceeds may go towards an Ocean Matters/HIMB scholarship fund allowing local students to participate in Ocean Matters' future expeditions to HIMB.

The event will take place on Friday, June 26th at 7:00pm in the Campus Center Ballroom.  Doors will open at 6:30pm. 

You may purchase tickets at the Campus Center Ticket Office or on eventbrite at the following link: Peter Yarrow Concert - Eventbrite
