Send your sweetie a 'Singing Valentine'
Nothing says “I love you” more than a song from the heart. On Tuesday, Feb. 13 and Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, quartets from the Charleston Barbershop Chorus and Palmetto Vocal Project will deliver “Singing Valentines” to that special someone in your life.
For $50, the a cappella singers, wearing distinctive red, white and black dress, will visit all kinds of places - restaurants, schools, offices, hospitals, retirement communities, or homes -- and sing a song for your loved one, while delivering a Valentine’s Day card and a long-stemmed rose provided by Belva’s Flower Shop of Mount Pleasant.
“Last year we delivered about 90 Singing Valentines to teachers, secretaries, nurses, retirees and students,” said Charleston Barbershop Chorus Music Director Braeden Kershner, who is also co-owner of Daniel Island-based Black Tie Music Academy. “It’s wonderful to surprise someone and see their smiles as we sing a love song on behalf of their loved one. It’s something they never expect to happen.”
