Jason Robert Brown, Andrew Keenan-Bolger, Ally Sheedy, Jarrod Spector and Tony winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson are among the artists scheduled to honor singer, songwriter, humanitarian and LaGuardia alumnus Peter Yarrow May 19 at LaGuardia High School in Manhattan.



LaGuardia will present Yarrow with the second-annual High School Hall of Fame Award at 7:30 PM. The evening will include performances by Broadway stars and LaGuardia students.

Other notables who will share performances include Anika Larsen (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical) and Broadway veteran Jessica Molaskey, director Don Roy King, artist Milton Glaser, Emmy-nominated acoustic duo Jay Ungar and Molly Mason, and dancer Dudley Williams.

Yarrow is perhaps best known as part of the group Peter, Paul and Mary and for their hit songs, "Puff the Magic Dragon" and "Blowin' in the Wind." Yarrow also received the prestigious Allard K. Lowenstein Award for advancing causes of human rights, peace and freedom as well as a Congressional Resolution honoring his humanitarian achievements in 2003.

Last year's Hall of Fame Award went to Ben Vereen. The LaGuardia Arts Gala is the high school's premier fundraiser.
