What is a Singing Valentine?
On February 14 quartets from the Harbormasters dress in their traditional Valentine ware of white shirt, red suspenders and red bow tie, travel throughout the Beaufort community to surprise the lucky recipients of a “Singing Valentine”. The Valentines consist of a love song (or two) sung in four-part harmony, a beautiful long stem rose provided by Carolina Floral Design and a card with a brief personal message from the sender.
Who are they for?
In the past, Singing Valentines have been sent to loved ones (both men and women), teachers, students, employees (and managers) of businesses, service personnel…the list goes on. The singing has taken place in homes, offices, gymnasiums, stores, restaurants, the marine base,…wherever the recipient happens to be at the designated moment. To receive a singing valentine is an unforgettable experience. Warning: the recipient may be left speechless!!!
