Alumna joins Peter Yarrow onstage
Donna Brassea Ransdell '78 recently attended a "Song-Fest and Book Signing" by Peter Yarrow, of the folk trio, Peter, Paul and Mary in San Diego. Yarrow called Ransdell up on stage to help with a sound check before the show, during which she harmonized on two verses of "The Water is Wide." During the Song Fest, Yarrow called up four people from the audience - including Donna -- to join him in singing "If I Had a Hammer." "Singing with someone of that fame was such an experience," Ransdell said, adding that she learned a lot of the Peter, Paul, and Mary songs while at C-SC, since one of her sorority sisters was a huge fan. Ransdell currently teaches music at two elementary schools in the Ramona Unified School District, in Ramona, Calif. She and her husband, Warren '80, reside in Poway, Calif. A retired Navy man, her husband is a supervisor of security services for Heritage Security in Carlsbad, Calif.
