Sending a loved one a singing valentine has long been a tradition in Moab, and the Valley Voices, an a cappella singing group, will offer the service again this year on Thursday, Feb. 14.

For $10, each recipient will be serenaded with two songs, and will receive a carnation, along with a message from the person who sent the singing valentine.

Valley Voices has been offering singing valentines for 26 years, and the cost has remained the same throughout that time, according to a news release from the group.

To give a singing valentine to that special someone, contact Mary Mayberry at 435-259-5767. Reservations are limited and the deadline is 5 p.m., Monday, Feb. 11.

The Valley Voices is a Moab-based women’s singing group that performs four-part harmony in the barbershop style. The group has performed throughout the community for the past 35 years.

Rehearsals are held each Monday evening, at 7 p.m., in Balsley Hall at the Community Church, 544 MiVida Dr. Those interested in joining the Valley Voices chorus, or scheduling a performance should contact Mayberry at 435-259-5767.
