    May/June Newsletter

    Hope this finds everyone enjoying this lovely weather.  I have been busy weeding and planting.  It is one of my happy places, in the garden.  I hope to connect with you in song somewhere over the next few months, I’ve given a list of events where we might do that.

    BIG NEWS…..I’m in the planning stages of recording a new CD, hopefully in the studio over the summer and releasing in the fall, stay tuned!

    Rock the Cradle is coming up soon on May 31st, it’s a FREE mini Music Session for parents with 0-24 months littles.  This is a one on one session, which means there is one child per adult.  Remember,  Grandma or Grandpa can come out with their little pumpkin too.  Each participant will receive a FREE CD too, so spread the word to all the families with  children  these ages.   email Sylvia to register OR for more information.

    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
