Goshen College will host a musical work titled “Paraguay Primeval,” a collection of stories and images by Carol Ann Weaver. Based on the extraordinary story of Mennonites moving to Paraguay from Canada in order to retain their own schools, and from Russia to flee the Stalinist regime, the show follows their attempt to find a new “Promised Land” in the uninviting Paraguayan Chaco. The show will take place in the Music Center’s Rieth Recital Hall and is free and open to the public.
