EVANSTON - Acclaimed musician and author Peter Buffett will bring his message of equitable global philanthropy through an innovative multimedia concert and conversation to the Northwestern University campus in Evanston on Thursday, Oct. 12.

The concert will take place in the Galvin Recital Hall in the Ryan Center for the Musical Arts, 70 Arts Circle Drive on the Evanston campus.
