During the week of February 8, Leesville’s chorus will be selling “singing valentines.” During first and second period, eight singing chorus students deliver a red carnation and a written message to those who have been sent valentines.
Students can purchase singing valentines in the main lobby Monday, Feb. 8 and Tuesday, Feb. 9 for three dollars.
Beginning, Intermediate Chorus and Capital Pride students divide into groups of eight in order to present the songs to valentine recipients. Beginning Chorus and Capital Pride perform during first period and Intermediate and Capital Pride perform during second.
These students will deliver the valentines on Thursday, Feb 11 during first and second periods.
There are six songs to choose from. The song choices vary from love songs, such as “Weak in the Knees” by Michael Alvarado, and songs about friendship, such as “A Little Help from My Friends,” by Joe Cocker. Some other songs are “Can’t Help Falling in Love” and “Stand by Me.”
“Singing valentines are a Leesville tradition. They’re our way of sharing music and spreading the joy and love of music and Valentine’s day throughout the entire school,” said Mrs. Diane Covington, Leesville chorus director.
Bryce Hart, senior, said, “I bought a singing valentine for my girlfriend. She loves music, so I thought a singing valentine was a cute way to let her know that I cared.”
