Life Is What You Make It: A Concert and Conversation with Peter Buffett
Saturday, June 9, 2012
We are delighted to announce that the talented Emmy-Award-winning musician and entertainer Peter Buffett will be providing entertainment on Saturday night. He will be presenting his latest live concert series, a thought-provoking, multi-media event that promises to inspire you to take the reins of your destiny and live your life to the fullest.
Buffett’s “Concert & Conversation” combines a cello-accompanied live piano/vocal performance, multimedia, and personal stories to give the audience an authentic, inspirational, and impactful evening. The event is the live companion to Buffett’s New York Times best-selling book, Life Is What You Make It, which former President Bill Clinton calls “a wise and inspiring book that should be required reading for every young person seeking to find his or her place in the world.”
The Concert will be held at the majestic, state-of-the-art Fisher Center at Bard and will be followed by a reception and book signing.
The Concert is FREE for all Conference Attendees (Participants must display their Conference Badges at the door).
