They’ll be saying “I love you” in song — and they’ll be leaving hundreds of lucky romantics speechless.
On Wednesday and Thursday, February 13 and 14, a group of barbershop quartets will fan out across the Las Vegas Valley to deliver Singing Valentines to hundreds of special sweethearts. The sound of harmony will ring out in offices, restaurants, schools and homes throughout the city and surrounding communities. Wherever they appear, they’ll draw a crowd — and sometimes a few tears.
The quartets belong to the local Las Vegas Chapter of the 34,000-member Barbershop Harmony Society, which is headquartered in Nashville, TN.
A typical Singing Valentine costs $50 and includes two love songs sung in barbershop harmony, a personalized Valentines card and a beautiful red rose. Men and women alike are on the receiving end — with moving results.
“It’s especially fun to deliver a Singing Valentine from a woman to her husband or boyfriend,” says Dennis Johnson, of the Silver Statesmen Chorus. “Last year, my quartet went to an elementary school and caught a male teacher at lunchtime. He was stunned. His students and other teachers gathered around, and were ready to start razzing him — until they saw the tears welling up in his eyes.”
