Pass the Mic is a multi-media/live-streamed benefit concert and on-line auction hosted by Noel Paul Stookey and Peter Yarrow (Peter, Paul & Mary). Witness the evolution of music’s power across time - from the 60’s to today - and its capacity to unify, educate and challenge all of us to help build a better world. You’ll hear music and stories from legendary artists: Judy Collins, Chuck D. and Paul Winter plus you'll meet emerging musician powerhouses, Beny EsguerraAndreína Maldonado and Chao Tian. We're celebrating how Music to Life offers support, training and resources - passing the mic to next gen musicians on the frontlines of our global community....

You'll also have a chance to bid on one-of-a-kind music-related memorabilia and 'experiences' including a signed Lindsay Buckingham (Fleetwood Mac) Fender guitar, a framed original Platinum PP&M album signifying sales of over 1 million records and a virtual wine tasting experience pairing wines and musical traditions from around the world hosted by the founder of Artisanal Cellars, a renowned wine importer and ethnomusicologist.  Our After Party offers live, interactive conversation with some of the artists from the show!

Join audience members from around the country and let these amazing creatives and their allies refresh your faith in a kinder, more unified world, through the power of music. This show is free but we welcome your support which underwrites this work and our participating artists.  Thank you.
