“I Hate to See the Summer Go” benefit concert at Steel Beam Theatre August 31

ST. CHARLES IL - The Steel Beam Theatre, 111 W. Main Street will present “I Hate to See the Summer Go,” featuring award-winning folk artist, songwriter and performer Mark Dvorak on Saturday, August 31 at 7:30 pm.


The performance is drawn from Dvorak’s thirty-year career performing, teaching and writing songs.

“At this stage of the game,” said Dvorak, who is completing his eighteenth recorded release. “I feel like I’m doing my best work. The Steel Beam is a very special performance space and I’m thrilled to be coming back again to sing.”

“I Hate to See the Summer Go” is Dvorak’s musical reflection on the changing season, love, struggle and the ripening of the year. The title is taken from Dvorak’s song which he wrote and released on 2011’s acclaimed Waterbug CD, Time Ain’t Got Noithin’ On Me.

Dvorak has performed in thirty-eight states and in parts of Europe and Canada. He has won awards for journalism and children’s music and received the 2013 FARM Lantern Bearer Award from Folk Alliance International. In 2012, WFMT 98.7 fm Midnight Special host Rich Warren named him “Chicago’s official troubadour” and was honored in 2008 with the Woodstock Folk Festival Lifetime Achievement Award.

“Mark has been a great supporter of the Steel  Beam Theatre over the years,” said Theatre Director Marge Uhlarlik-Boller. “He’s a wonderful, engaging performer and we’re thrilled to have him back again for our annual benefit."

The Steel Beam Theatre is an award-winning professional theatre located in the heart of historic St. Charles, and is currently presenting its 18th season.
