MANCHESTER, NH – Men in tuxes will be singing “I love you” this coming Valentine’s Day in New Hampshire, leaving scores of lucky romantics speechless. Each year the International Barbershop Harmony Society’s Singing Valentines program is celebrated locally by the Concord Coachmen, a community chorus formed in 1957.
They are now taking orders to deliver a “Singing Valentine” to your special someone – at work, at the gym, or in the comfort of your home, a service they’ve been providing since 1997.
On Tuesday, February 14, members will be forming quartets to deliver two love songs and a rose to mostly-surprised recipients, a harmonious performance that always leaves recipients grinning and speechless.
A Manchester/Concord Area delivery costs $50, and proceeds go entirely to support the music education programs of the Coachmen. Singing Valentines are tailored to your loved one and recipients can be men, women or children who can be serenaded at work, at home or even in a nursing home setting. The $50 fee includes two love songs, a red rose and pictures of the special moment.
Quartets will be scheduling deliveries between 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Valentine quartets are fully vaccinated, will be re-tested on the 13th, and will bring masks should anyone request they wear them.
Reservations can be made through the Coachmen’s website or Facebook page, or by phone, messaging or e-mail. Credit cards are taken with reservations on EventBrite.com.
The Coachmen are non-profit, and one of five choruses in New Hampshire affiliated with the Barbershop Harmony Society.
