The Songs of Peter, Paul & Mary
Arranged and Conducted by
Robert DeCormier
Peter Yarrow and Noel Paul Stookey
with Members of the New York Choral Society and the New York Students Symphonic Ensemble

Over the years, Robert DeCormier, Peter Paul and Mary's Music Director, wrote both choral and orchestral arrangements for many of the trio's most beloved songs. These were traditionally sung at Carnegie Hall benefits for The New York Choral Society of which Robert DeCormier was also Founder, Director & Conductor. This gala benefit concert at Symphony Space on September 29th at 8pm will feature these songs and honor Robert DeCormier, who will also conduct. Performers will include Peter Yarrow, Noel Paul Stookey, members of The New York Choral Society, and an orchestral ensemble composed of students and graduates of LaGuardia High School and the High School of Music & Art (Peter's alma mater). All proceeds will benefit Operation Respect, an educational non-profit that focuses on the creation of caring, safe, bully-free school climates in thousands of schools in the U.S. and Canada as well as countries such as Israel, Ukraine, Croatia, Hong Kong and Japan.
