Hello my honey, hello my baby, hello my Valentine. And hello to Sarasota Chorus of the Keys.
The chorus will offer its annual Singing Valentines throughout the Sarasota and Bradenton area on Feb. 14 when you can send a barbershop quartet to a home or office complete with a card, a rose and two love songs.
“This is probably one of our favorite activities,” said Bob Amer, marketing director of the Chorus. ”The expressions on the faces of the singing valentine recipients are absolutely priceless. They love receiving a singing valentine far more than they do a card or a box of candy. This means a lot more to them.”
The Sarasota Chorus of the Keys is the oldest continuous arts group in Sarasota with a more than 60-year history and 100 members.
Singing Valentine quartets will go practically anywhere to deliver this special treat. They have sung to loved ones in beauty salons, fitness centers, pools, dentist offices – wherever the loved one may be.
“We have even sung to guys,” Amer added. ”If a female wants to get her male friend a singing valentine, we’ll do it. That really gets a lot of laughs.”
