 The annual Ware Lecture on Peacemaking will feature the Grammy-Award winning musicians

On Thursday, April 11, Elizabethtown College will welcome Grammy-award winning musicians, Silkroad, for a free concert for the public. Yo-Yo Ma conceived Silkroad in 1998 as a reminder that even as rapid globalization resulted in division, it brought extraordinary possibilities for working together.


Today, the Grammy Award-winning artists seek and practice radical cultural collaboration in many forms, creating and presenting new music, teacher and musician training workshops, and residency programs in schools, museums, and communities.

Silkroad has recorded seven albums. Sing Me Home, which won the 2016 Grammy for Best World Music Album was developed and recorded alongside the documentary feature The Music of Strangers, from Oscar-winning director Morgan Neville. Learn more about the performers.

What: Grammy-Award winning music group, Silkroad, will share its music with the Elizabethtown community as this year’s annual Ware Lecture guests.

When: Thursday, April 11, beginning at 7:30 p.m.

Where: Leffler Chapel and Performance Center, Elizabethtown College (One Alpha Drive, Elizabethtown, Pa. 17022).

Who: The Ware Lecture is open to the public. Tickets are free. You may reserve tickets by calling (717) 361-4757 or email: lecturetickets@etown.edu.
