Singing Valentines to spice up the holiday

Hey husbands and boyfriends: Been in the doghouse ever since that holiday present didn’t work out?

Well, next month there is a chance to get back on your loved one’s good side.

The Marshalltown Men’s Chorus will be bringing back its Singing Valentines for Valentine’s Day Feb. 14, which they call “the most unique Valentine this year.”

For the cost of $25, chorus members will arrive in person to sing two songs and give that special lady a silk rose, a card and a nice memory. Last year, Roxanne Bach of Marshalltown received a Singing Valentine as a way of thanks for helping as a substitute pianist for the group.

“It was really meaningful and very touching,” Bach said. “I think it’s very fitting for the holiday. It’s an honor to have them come by because they are a group with a lot of talent and are great guys.”

The event is a fundraiser for the group’s events and features old-fashioned sweetheart songs.

“Everyone has a great time with them,” chorus member Larry Pfantz said in a previous interview with the Times-Republican.
