Love is in the air – and the water – Tuesday as members of the Rock River Valley Barbershop Chorus fan out to deliver Valentine harmonies from the heart. One of their stops brought them to the Duis Recreation Center in Sterling, where Ed Floto (left), Monty Coffer, Jim Brotheridge and Dave Zimmerman made one of their special deliveries.
The poolside serenade was just one of several stops the quartet, along with two others from the chapter, made for Valentine’s Day.
The Singing Valentines event is a fundraiser for the group’s Youth in Harmony program, which teaches high school students from more than a half-dozen Sauk Valley schools about barbershop-style singing.
Fifty bucks bought recipients two songs, a box of chocolates, a rose, a card, and some romantic memories.
Those who want to hear the harmonies for themselves can attend the chorus’ annual show at 3 p.m. April 29 at Centennial Auditorium in Sterling.
Tickets cost $15 for adults, $10 for seniors and $5 for students with a student ID.
