    Sylvia’s Summer Schedule 2017

    It’s going to be a really busy summer!  I’ll be all over the province and I hope that we get a chance to sing together, somewhere. :). Plus, some of you might remember that my daughter is getting married this year, so that is some big excitement for me in July and my grandson is coming for a visit.  I hope that you are going to have lots of great adventures this summer too.  See You Soon Baboons!

    Sylvia’s at Telemiracle, Happy March 2017!

    Telemiracle_41_Colour2945

    WOW! I am thrilled to be performing on Telemiracle this year @ 7:30am(aprox) on Sunday morning, perfect time I think, and I hope you’ll all be watching.
    I am having a fundraiser because Potash Corp is matching performers donations this year up to $150,000. I hope this will become an annual event (performing & Fundraising). See Poster for all the info below.
    Also, the Marshmallow Treat Concerts are coming up on the 16th & 17th with another family concert this time round AND a new video that I have just had made for the Cookie Cutter Song will be premiered, along with it’s creator.
    Last but not least, if you are in the Prairie Spirit School Division, I am offering a great school special from April 10th – 13th. Let your child’s teacher/admin know about it and they can contact me to book. See You Soon Baboons!

    April 10th – 11th School Concert Special

    (Prairie Spirit Schools)

    I try really hard to make my music affordable for schools, and the Winter Special is a great opportunity to have me at your school at a great price. The concerts are 45 minutes in length and I bring my own sound system. If you have questions or would like more information, please contact me via phone or email. Hope to See you Soon Baboon!

    Sylvia’s School Concert Showscan go as high as grade 6, (but I leave that decision up to the school staff). I often recommend care partners for the school concert. Matching the two older grades, with the two younger grades. They can model fun behaviour and really enjoy the show with their young friends, instead of worrying about their ‘cool’ factor.

    Winter ‘Sylvia’ Special
    2 Schools must book together
    April 10th- 13th @ $250

    Bonnie, Sylvia & Freida in Concert!!

    Yep, I do entertainment for adults too!  Not very often though, so I hope you will check this one out.  Freida is a comedy act I do and she loves to sing and sometimes gets a little risque! Check out the show’s description………

    Bonnie Logan, storyteller extraordinaire teams up with the fabulous singer/songwriter Sylvia Chave  & Freida, to bring you a unique audience experience.  Bonnie will keep you spellbound with story & song accompanied by her faithful banjo.  Sylvia’s music will have you laughing, crying & singing along.  Freida’s cockeyed seniors view on life is always memorable.  The three of them together?  Magic.

    If you have a home in your throat for a songbird, a basement full of belly chuckles and you’re not afraid of toenails flying or gizzards flapping then treat your sweet silly self to a toe stomping, finger snapping good old time with Bonnie and Sylvia & Freida.

    Big News for Daycares & Preschools!

    I was so excited to sing with so many of you these passed few months when you took advantage of my Nov/Jan/Feb special.  I do understand that cost is totally an obstacle for booking me, so for 2015 I’m going to lower my cost for a preschools/daycares to book me.  You can get a 30 minute show, on a weekday, for $200 + gst.  If you are outside of Saskatoon, just add a .40/km travel charge. Please spread the word to your child’s daycare or preschool.
