WOODSTOCK, ILL - Off Square Music will present "We Remember Pete" at the Unity Spiritual Center, 225 Calhoun Street in Woodstock  on Saturday, March 15 at 8 p.m. General admission is $12.

The program will feature folk artist and songwriter Mark Dvorak of Riverside, Ill., leading the audience through some of folk singer and activist Pete Seeger's best-known songs. Dvorak has followed in the footsteps of Seeger as a musician, educator and community builder. He toured for six seasons with "WeaverMania!," performing Seeger's role as a singer, storyteller and banjo player, and has given hundreds of presentations on American folk music in elementary schools and for community organizations across the country.
 
"All of humanity has lost a great artist and teacher," said Dvorak. "Pete lived a very long and productive life. He leaves behind a lot of great songs we can learn to sing together, and a social model upon which we can learn to take care of each other, and the planet. I am thrilled to be a part of the Woodstock music community, and looking forward to singing together in the beautiful sanctuary at Unity."
