The Quartet from the Red Bank Area Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society poses with the recipient of a surprise Singing Valentine — and YOU can be “NEXT!,” if your personal Cupid is a thoughtful one.
“There is nothing wrong with chocolate,” insists the Chorus of the Atlantic. “Flowers are definitely okay. A reservation at a quiet restaurant is a nice touch. But if you want to make a lifelong impression, consider the gift of song.”
With the institution known as Valentines Day lurking just around the corner, the singing component of the Red Bank Area Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society wants to remind one and all that “now is the time to order a singing valentine from a male barbershop quartet.”
Each year, the Chorus sends a corps of uniformed quartets throughout the region to surprise-serenade sweethearts in four-part, Sweet Adeline harmony. The quartets have appeared in a panorama of settings — homes, offices, restaurants, warehouses, schools, even a police academy — and as the nonprofit Chorus points out, “They will go anywhere to bring your message of love.”
