Emmy Award winner to perform on campus

Emmy Award-winning musician, philanthropist, and author Peter Buffett will come to the college to perform for the 25th Anniversary of The Community Foundation of South Puget Sound. The foundation will sponsor the event on May 8 at 7 p.m in the Kenneth J. Minnaert Center for the Arts, Building 21.

Buffett has been a musician for over 30 years and has released 16 records on multiple record labels. He has worked with famous artists like Angelique Kidjo and Grammy-nominated recording artist Akon on songs inspired by human rights.

His tour to SPSCC is focused on his new concert series, “Life is What You Make It: A Concert & Conversation with Peter Buffett.” Buffett’s performance will be an “interactive event fusing music, video, audience participation, and personal anecdotes,” according to an email from Matt Cusack, Buffett’s marketing team member.

Peter Buffett is the son of Warren Buffett, a wealthy and successful business investor. Despite his father’s riches, Buffett said “the only real inheritance handed down from his parents was a philosophy: forge your own path in life,” according to his website.

Buffett, in a Youtube video, called the show a “conversation as well as a concert. It’s really about music and interactive dialogue around finding your own path, what is your way to fulfillment, [and] not the expectations of others, society, [or] friends.”
