Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and it is time to start thinking about the best and most creative way to make a lasting impression on your loved one, according to Roanoke’s Virginia Gentlemen.

The group’s A capella quartets are gearing up to serenade lovers throughout the Roanoke region in celebration of Valentine’s Day with their infamous Singing Valentines.  Quartets are currently available on Monday, Feb. 13 and Tuesday, Feb. 14. The delivery will be made by tuxedo-clad members of The Virginia Gentlemen Harmony Chorus.

“If you’re looking for an unusual and unique Valentine’s Day gift to say ‘I love you,’ book your Singing Valentine today,” said Dave Lloyd, president and long-time member of the organization. “We are already receiving reservations and encourage those interested in this unique Valentine’s gift to call as soon as possible and secure a telegram.  This is not a box of chocolates or bouquet of flowers, but a memorable surprise.”

This telegram style message of love offers a surprise visit to a loved one at home, school, restaurant or workplace, whether a spouse, girlfriend, teacher, family member or friend.  A Singing Valentine quartet will serenade anywhere you choose in Roanoke, Salem, Vinton, and Botetourt County.

The quartet sings two love songs, presents the recipient with a personal message, along with a long-stemmed red rose.  Additional roses may also be ordered for the delivery.

The cost of a Singing Valentine is just $50 and orders are currently being taken by contacting Ed Burke at 540-977-0472.  Or, if one prefers a female quartet instead, call 540-466-4640 for Star City Sounds, an organization featuring female quartets.
