Songs for your sweetheart offered by barbershop quartet members in time for Valentine’s Day
They’ll be saying “I love you” in song – and they’ll be leaving hundreds of lucky romantics speechless.
Several barbershop quartets will fan out across Douglas County and Carson city areas to deliver “Singing Valentines” to special sweethearts. The sound of harmony will ring out in offices, restaurants, schools and homes throughout the area. Wherever they appear, they’ll draw a crowd – and sometimes a few tears, said member Bud Schafer of Chorus of the Comstock.
The quartets belong to local chapters of the 34,000-member Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barber Shop Quartet Singing in America, Inc. (SPEBSQSA).
A Singing Valentine costs $25 and includes two songs sung in barbershop harmony, a card, a rose and chocolate. Men and women alike are on the receiving end – with moving results.
To order a Singing Valentine, contact Schafer at 883-4531.
For orders in any of 250 cities outside the Carson City area, call SPEBSQSA’s National Singing Valentines Clearinghouse at (800) 876-SING and ask for a Singing Valentine, or visit the Harmony Hall Home Page on the World Wide Web at http://www.spebsqsa.org/ to search by state.
