Anyone looking to make major points with their loved one on Valentine’s Day need look no farther than The Tidesmen.

That’s because there’s nothing that says ‘I love you’ better than a barbershop quartet singing it, rose in hand, at the front door.

Barbershop quartets across the Central Vancouver Island will deliver singing valentines to special sweethearts — not only at home but also in offices,  work sites and schools throughout the region.

Wherever they appear, they’ll draw a crowd — and sometimes a few tears.

The quartets belong to the  Barbershop Harmony Society and its local chapter The Tidesmen.

The $50 price of a Singing Valentine includes two songs sung in barbershop harmony, a card, a rose and a digital photo to remember the occasion.   Men and women alike are on the receiving end, with moving results.

Supporters are encouraged to order early.   Because of time and quartet limits there will only be singing valentines offered to the first  50 orders.

Romantic partners are invited to order Singing Valentines by contacting Gerry Steff at 250-248-8742.
