The Hershey Community Chorus has accepted an invitation to perform with Barry Manilow in the finale of his ONE LAST TIME tour stop at the Giant Center in Hershey on Thursday, March 17, 2016. The Chorus will join Mr. Manilow and his band of 13 musicians and singers, in the finale which includes his hits “I Write the Songs” and “Copacabana”.

The Grammy, Tony, and Emmy Award-winning musician’s career skyrocketed to superstardom when his mega hit song, “Mandy,” topped the charts in 1975.

After performing more than 400 concerts at the Las Vegas Hilton and Paris Las Vegas from 2005 through 2011, Manilow has limited his concert appearances. The ONE LAST TIME! Tour is a major undertaking and as Manilow said, “is my way of thanking everyone for their years of support…one last time!”

Barry Manilow’s unparalleled career encompasses virtually every area of music, including performing, composing, arranging and producing. A Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee, Manilow has triumphed in every medium of entertainment. With worldwide record sales exceeding 80 million, Barry Manilow is ranked as the top Adult Contemporary chart artist of all time with over 50 Top 40 hits.

Tickets are available at the Giant Center Box Office and through TicketMaster.

Hershey Community Chorus performs at the Capitol Tree Lighting in the Capitol Rotunda, Harrisburg, PA December 14th, 2015.
