Treat your Valentine to a song or two
They’ll be saying “I love you” in song this month — and they’ll be leaving thousands of sweethearts speechless.
This year, hundreds of barbershop quartets across the continent will deliver Singing Valentines to thousands of special sweethearts. Listen for the sound of harmony in ofﬁces, factories, schools, and homes throughout North America. Wherever they appear, they’ll draw a crowd — and sometimes a few tears.
The price of a typical Singing Valentine starts in the low-to-mid two digits (depending on location) and often includes two songs sung in barbershop harmony, a card, a rose, and perhaps a box of chocolates, teddy bear, helium-ﬁlled balloon, or similar gifts. Men and women alike are on the receiving end with moving results.
Singing Valentines providers include members of the Barbershop Harmony Society, Sweet Adelines International, and Harmony, Inc.
Valentine providers can be located at SingingValentines.com. The Society also offers a toll-free number for those without Internet access: (800) 876-SING, ask for Singing Valentines.
