Invitation: Honoring Pete Seegers Vision

NYC Friends of Clearwater with the NY Society for Ethical Culture presents a night of song and remembrances of what Pete Seeger wanted for this planet and all people. The man and his music sang out for social justice, environmental justice, peace and equality.

We honor Pete Seeger’s Vision. What he stood for, what he sang for and what he urged each of us to strive for.

It will be a music filled evening! This dazzling lineup represents every phase of Pete’s musical development since he emerged from the McCarthy era. Veteran performers include the WalkAbout Clearwater Chorus, David Amram, Guy Davis, Christine Lavin, Oscar Brand, Charlie King, Happy Traum, David Bernz.

You’ll also hear the next generation heirs of Pete’s legacy, Clearwater Power of Song’s Jacob Bernz and Matt Emmer and two other young singer-songwriters Leo Liebeskind and Aurora Barnes.

Speakers include Manna Jo Greene, Environmental Action Director of Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, Paul Gallay, President of Riverkeeper and Chief Oren Lyons, a Faithkeeper for the Onondaga Nation.

Sloop club representatives from up and down the Hudson will share how Pete inspired them.

Please reserve your space at as soon as possible. We want to see you there. Online tickets are $12 plus a small processing fee. Donations can be made online as well. Admission is kept affordable as Pete would like, and space permitting no one will be turned away for lack of funds. 

If you know someone who is not online, or does not wish to order online, please help them out by ordering tickets for them.  If ordering online is absolutely not an option or if you are in need of a scholarship please leave a message to make arrangements at 347.796.0602.

A portion of proceeds go to the Pete Seeger Environmental Educators Network, a NYCFC open source project to promote Pete's ideals and the promise of youth.

May 22nd Thursday 6:30 - 9:30 pm at the New York Society for Ethical Culture 2 West 64th St, Auditorium


Note: Online ordering is much preferred as it will be difficult logistically to handle too many offline requests.

~*~ If you have RSPV'ed before please do again as this meetup was cancelled somehow and had to be redone.

~*~ Besides attending the asks here are 1) to please share this event widely with your groups and 2) we want to make an information packet for each person and NYCFC invites all GA member orgs to have a piece of literature to add to the packet. All paper to be delivered to NY Society for Ethical Culture by or before Tuesday morning May 20th.  If you could, please have a volunteer to help put together packets in the afternoon of May 20. There is a separate meetup for that.

This is a solution to attendees being besieged with many tables and/or many organizations handing out flyers.
Please keep to one piece of literature per group (if possible). People can find more information via our websites
