Sylvia to Perform at Hershey Area Playhouse, 3/29


Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum recording artist Sylvia comes to the Hershey Area Playhouse on March 29th to perform an acoustic evening of songs new and old. The concert will reflect the beauty and depth of her personal and artistic growth while still captivating the legions of fans that propelled her to stardom. There will be shows at 3:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. Tickets are available by visiting www.usatheatres.com/concerts or by calling Brown Paper Tickets at 1-800-838-3006.

Sylvia's long-time friend and co-producer, John Mock, will accompany her on guitar and will open the show with a set of his own instrumental compositions. 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, as well as pianist Kirk Reese.

Best known for her crossover music success with the song "Nobody," which reached #1 on the Country Billboard chart in 1982, Sylvia recorded for RCA Records until the end of 1987. She recorded six albums and garnered a total of 13 Top Ten and #1 songs, including "Drifter," "Fallin' in Love," "Tumbleweed" and "Snapshot." Since those days, she has enjoyed a long and fulfilling career recording for her own label and pursuing her passion for helping others to find their own unique voice through her work as a certified life coach.

"When the RCA record deal ended, I took some time to soul search. I knew I wanted to continue
to sing, but I wanted to explore how to take it to a level that was more compelling for me," she said. Training to become a life coach was a "natural next step," Sylvia goes on to say. When looking back over her own career, she realized it would have been helpful to have a mentor who was not involved with her career directly; a safe "oasis" to discuss, explore, and plan her life and career outside the pressures of the music industry. Mentoring and coaching others felt like a wonderful way to give something of value back to other artists and business colleagues.

Sylvia is looking forward to sharing her music with her fans. She's excited to relive the memories
with them through new, acoustic versions of the beloved hits and to share snapshots of her more
recent journey through the songs that she's accumulated along the way.
