A benefit for the Academy’s Institute for Teachers

“Life Is What You Make It: A Concert and Conversation with Peter Buffett,” is a live performance featuring Peter Buffett on piano with cellist, Michael Kott.

This is a multi-media presentation that takes the audience on a journey with Peter from his discovery of the piano, to writing music for commercials and film and then on to how his current philanthropic work with the NoVo Foundation has ultimately influenced his songs and life.

Using his own life story and experiences as illustration, Buffet discusses how important it is for each person to define his or her own path, regardless of their wealth or background and ultimately conveys that it’s ones values-and what we are able to give back to society-that shape and define us as individuals. Buffett’s integrity, candor and musical talent make for an uplifting and rewarding evening that will resonate with every audience member looking to lead a more fulfilling life and leave a meaningful legacy.

The event is the live companion to Buffett’s recently released¬†book, Life Is What You Make It (Random House/Harmony Books), which debuted at #4 on the New York Times Best Seller Hardcover Advice list.

Peter will encourage questions from the audience throughout the presentation making it a very intimate and interactive experience.

Please no filming of the performance without prior artist consent
