|On Tuesday, February 14, 2023, a half-dozen barbershop quartets will fan out across the Augusta - Aiken metro area to deliver Singing Valentines to hundreds of special sweethearts. The sound of harmony will ring out in offices, restaurants, schools and homes throughout the Augusta metro area. Wherever they appear, they'll draw a crowd -- and sometimes a few tears.|
The quartets belong to the Augusta Chapter of the 18,000-member Barbershop Harmony Society, which is headquartered in Nashville, TN.
An "in person" Singing Valentine! Package starts at $65 and includes a tuxedo clad quartet serenade with two beautiful love songs, a nicely decorated rose, and a card with your personal, special message

Call 803-599-4228 or visit www.gardencitychorus.org for more information. Come join our merry band of dwarves, hobbits, elves and men as we “push back the darkness” with harmony.|

|In 2017, the Garden City Chorus initiated music scholarships for area high school seniors who plan to further their education. To our knowledge, these are the only scholarships of their kind in the CSRA. To date, we have awarded over $10,000. In the fall of 2021, the Chorus designated our scholarship as the STEVE WILDER MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP. Steve was instumental in establishing and administering this scholarship, and we were very sadenned by his untiimley and unexpected death.|
We want to especially thank Turners Keyboards for their support of the scholarship program. Every year since inception, Turners has provided a scholarship to a Davidson Fine Arts School senior.
If you or your organization would like to sponsor a scholarship, please email email@example.com. We do all the work at no charge - you get all the credit.
