“At this stage of the game,” said Dvorak, “I feel like I’m doing my best work. ‘Back Home’ has a lot of variety and is a sampling of what I like to do before a live audience.”

Dvorak will present “Just Something My Grandma Used to Sing,” an autobiographical program of songs and stories.

“My grandma used to sing all time, around the house and on car rides,” said Dvorak. “She was also in Sweet Adelienes group in the 1950s and knew lots of old songs from the 30s and 40s. Over the years I’ve been adding arrangements of these classics to my repertoire.”
