Midwest troubadour Dvorak to perform in Michigan City on November 3
MICHIGAN CITY IN - The Michigan City Public Library and the Festival Players Guild have joined to present Chicago folk singer Mark Dvorak in two concerts on Saturday, November 3. At 2:00 pm, Dvorak will present a free concert, "Old Songs & New People," for young audiences at the Library. At 7:30 pm, he will present an evening of folk and original music at the Mainstreet Theatre, 807 Franklin Street.
"Mark is a charismatic performer," said Festival Players Guild director Jerry Peters. "He carries a gentle spark of passion wherever he performs. We're certainly pleased that he'll be visiting us again in Michigan City."
Dvorak has been called "a folk singer's folk singer and has spent the last twenty-five years crisscrossing the country, performing, teaching and learning all the while. His concerts have been hailed as "a refreshing portrait of the living folk tradition, his song writing has been called "wondrous," and "profound." WFMT Fine Arts Radio recently named him "Chicago's official troubadour."
Dvorak continues to be an integral member of the faculty at Chicago's Old Town School of Folk Music where he was recently named Artist in Residence. "The Old Town School is the music place from where I've come, and the place to which I return," said Dvorak. "It's where I did a lot learning and a lot of singing and playing. I've had the chance to meet and interact with all kinds of people and musicians in time there on faculty."
The award winning family concert, "Old Songs & New People," is Dvorak's introduction to American folk music. He has been presenting this concert in arts-in-education settings and to family audiences for over twenty years. "It's a fun show," said Peters. "Dvorak is very engaging as a performer, and the program is interactive, with sing a longs, stories and a play party dance. Families shouldn't miss the chance to experience this program. We're very lucky to have Mark back in Michigan City."
Tickets for the evening concert are $12 general admission, $11 for seniors and $6 for students of high school age or younger, and may be reserved by calling the Mainstreet Theatre Box Office at 219 874 4269 or through the Festival Players Guild email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
