Singing Valentines: 

We hope to have a full report on for Singing Valentines sales available Tuesday. Six singers from the Harmony Hawks and two from the Old Capitol Chorus made up the two quartets. Thank you to quartet members Al Huneke, Jack Ray, Larry Hlavacek, Gary Lindsay, Darrel Herschberger and Duane Scott, to Mary Huneke from her PR work, to Darrel for leading the effort and to Bob Handley for manning Valentines Central. The quartets had a great time bringing a great experience to the recipients.

Preparation for Tuesday:

  1. Review and sing through several times “Let’s Get Away from It All,” so you can sing it in rehearsal without the music.
  2. Sing once through the others on our rehearsal list below:
