Award-Winning Country Music Star Sylvia Returns After Long Hiatus, March 2014

By: Oct. 31, 2013

After taking a break for many years, award-winning country-pop vocalist Sylvia is returning to the stage.

Sylvia is probably best known for her crossover music success with the song "Nobody", which reached number 13 Pop and Number 1 Country in 1982.

The song earned her a gold record certification and was awarded BMI Song of the Year for receiving more radio airplay than any other single that year.

In 1983, Sylvia was named Female Vocalist of the Year by the Academy of Country Music.

Recording for the flagship record label RCA until the end of 1987, Sylvia recorded six albums and garnered a total of 13 top ten and number one songs, including "Drifter", "Fallin' in Love", "Tumbleweed" and "Snapshot".

Sylvia crisscrossed the nation many times with her popular concert performances (over 200 per year), and went into semi-retirement in the late eighties, turning her energies to songwriting.

Now, over two decades later, Sylvia is returning to concert performances, and Hershey, Pennsylvania is currently first in line.

Christian Public Entertainment Network (also known as Hershey Drive-In Theatre, and USA Theatres), which operates a portable drive-in and outdoor movie theatre in Central Pennsylvania, is organizing Sylvia's concert performances in Hershey.

"I've always wanted to integrate concerts into our annual programming schedule," said Ronald M. Vastola, Outreach Coordinator for Christian Public Entertainment Network.

According to Sylvia, her concerts will reflect the beauty and depth of her personal and artistic growth, while still captivating the legions of fans that propelled her to stardom.

Sylvia will be accompanied with composer, arranger and multi-instrumentalist John Mock, who has worked with such notable artists as the Dixie Chicks, James Taylor, Nanci Griffith, Maura O'Connell, Kathy Mattea and Mark O'Connor.

Mock will also be opening for Sylvia, sharing music selections through his concert presentation From the Shoreline, where John performs original instrumental compositions on the guitar, concertina, mandolin, and tin whistle.

Two concert performances will be held on Saturday, March 29th, 2014 (3:00 pm and 8:00 pm) at Hershey Area Playhouse, 830 Cherry Drive, Hershey, Pa. Concert goers will have an opportunity to meet and greet Sylvia and John following the concert. Attendees will also have the opportunity to see and hear a live pre-show by singer-songwriter Carolyn Marie with singers Robert Doll and Chrystal Greiner of Pennsylvania. The pre-show will be accompanied with pianist Kirk Reese, who has played on countless recordings including "The Reese Project: Blue Etude", which received a Grammy nomination in 2002. Tickets go on sale at 12:00 pm on Thursday, November 7th, and seating is limited to a total of 300 reserved seats. For tickets or more information, visit the
