February 22, 2017 - Molly, the Opera-singing Cow, a new book by Sylvia Yorke, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Molly is just another cow in Farmer Jessup's Kansas barn, until a radio broadcast captures her attention and launches her on an unusual path-for a cow.

Farmer Jessup happily does his Saturday barn chores with the radio blasting opera performances all the way from New York City. He especially likes "Madame Butterfly." And Molly can't help but listen. One day a strange sound begins to well up in her throat. Her "moo" sounds different, quite odd, but surprisingly pleasant to her ears. She tries out her new moo every day. But in this effort to learn a new skill, her animal friends jeer and desert her. Molly perseveres, refining her moo for the big fair.

Molly, the Opera-singing Cow, is a delightful tale of a cow and her special moo!

About the Author:
Sylvia Yorke began studies in her native city of Cincinnati, Ohio, at the College-Conservatory of Music, and continued to refine her vocal talent at the Juilliard School of Music in New York, The Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria and the Muziklyceum in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

She made her debut in the title role of "Madame Butterfly" in Trier, Germany and continued her operatic career throughout Europe and the United States.

Having received many awards acknowledging her achievements as a singer, teacher and promoter of young singers, she is now back in Cincinnati nurturing new students of the vocal arts. Molly, the Opera-singing Cow, reflects her joy of singing and proof of her strong belief that anyone can learn to sing. Molly's story reflects Sylvia's story, but imagination is the true driver of the tale.

Molly, the Opera-singing Cow is a 30-page paperback with a retail price of $16.00. The ISBN is 978-1-4809-2685-1. It was published by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
