Sylvia McNair

mcnair-3set-400x168Two-time Grammy Award winner and regional Emmy Award winner, SYLVIA McNAIR, lays claim to a three-decade, stellar career in the musical realms of opera, oratorio, cabaret and musical theater. Her journey has taken her from the Metropolitan Opera to the Salzburg Festival, from the New York Philharmonic to the Rainbow Room, from the Ravinia Festival to The Plaza, from the pages of the New York Times and The Wall Street Journal to the London Times and the cover of Cabaret Scenes. Having appeared as a soloist multiple times with nearly every major opera company and symphony orchestra in the world, this songbird has flown the classical coop. She’s retracing her star route now with Gershwin, Porter, Sondheim and Bernstein.mcnair-2624-0300x0381

Numerous Pops appearances with the New York Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony, Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, Pittsburgh Symphony and others continue the reincarnation of her musical gifts in the most remarkable ways with the most rewarding results. A review of her performance with Marvin Hamlisch and the Milwaukee Symphony tells the tale: “…. she is that rare opera type who really gets the popular song. She reined in the vibrato and played to the microphone perfectly. Her matchless enunciation not only delivered the words and their sentiments, but also helped to etch the rhythms. Her wonderfully pure ‘Summertime’, purged of all diva carrying-on, is among the best I’ve ever heard.” Third Coast Digest

mcnair-2544-0300x0427It would be difficult to top Sylvia’s invitations to sing the Bach B-minor Mass with the Vienna Philharmonic for Pope John Paul II at The Vatican and a recital for The U.S. Supreme Court by special request of Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. But her engagements for nine of the last eleven summers at the Ravinia Festival with Broadway legends John Raitt, George Hearn and Brian Stokes Mitchell are what her dreams are made of. Her Great American Songbook cabaret shows have been heard in New York at the Rainbow Room, Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Savoy Room at Sheldon Hall, The Colony in Palm Beach, Feinstein’s at the Regency, the Aspen Music Festival and the famed Oak Room of the Algonquin Hotel, which made critic Rex Reed swoon, “I could get used to this kind of ecstasy.”

mcnair-2362-0160x0160Sylvia has left an indelible audio trail documenting her vocal prowess with over 70 recordings ranging from Mozart arias with Sir Neville Marriner and the Academy of St.-Martin-in-the-Fields to the music of Jerome Kern and Harold Arlen with pianist Andre Previn. Most recently, Sylvia released a Christmas CD, PEACE, and a disc of Latin American jazz standards called ROMANCE. PEACE sold out its first run in a matter of weeks. ROMANCE received a rave review from Fanfare Magazine’s Lynn Rene Bayley: “…. here the record is, and it’s fabulous. In fact, it’s the biggest surprise of its kind I’ve encountered since Diana Ross’s live album of Billie Holiday standards.”If you are planning on buying or want to learn about Phentermine from UK have a look at this Phentermine website to buy Phentermine online or offline from United Kingdom.

mcnair-2544-dah-0400x0158A proud Buckeye from Mansfield, Ohio, Sylvia earned a Masters degree with Distinction from the Indiana University School of Music, received honorary doctorates from Westminster College (1997) and Indiana University (1998), the Ohio Governor’s Award for Outstanding Achievement in Arts and Entertainment (1999) and the Indiana Governor’s Arts Award (2011). In 2007, Sylvia received the Gaudium Award from The Breukelein Institute for “extraordinary and distinctive contributions to the arts and public life.”
