What better way to start this Valentines weekend than with a BANG! An old fashioned live singing Valentine with down-to-earth love songs, a rose and a picture of the delivery? The local barbershop chorus — a chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Foundation — are offering  singing Valentines as this winters fundraiser.

Valentines are just $38 for two songs of love and admiration, a rose and a high quality emailed photo.

The chorus is currently made up of 15 members from all areas of the county and are always welcoming new members and all voices who enjoy singing — no previous music experience needed. Sing-a-long learning tracks provided. The chorus meets every Thursday night at 7 p.m. currently at The Newport Presbyterian Church, 227 NE 12th St. in Newport.

To learn more about the chorus or about arranging a Singing Valentine — great for groups or staff and students, too —  email Richard at [email protected] or call 541-961-3566.
