Staff Report

On Valentine’s Day and the Sunday before the holiday, the Santa Ynez Valley Master Chorale will continue a fundraising tradition of providing singing valentines for individuals or groups.

For a donation of $50, small ensembles will sing three songs “for sweethearts, mothers, fathers, grandmothers, grandfathers, or any other special person within the Santa Ynez Valley,” a spokesman said. That includes going to homes, workplaces, nursing homes or the hospital. 

The Singing Valentine performances will be available from 2 to 6 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 10, and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 14.

Donors will be able to choose the three songs they prefer from a list prepared by the chorale. Some on the list are romantic, others sweet and some funny, but all are about love.
