Valentines Day serenades provided through the Theodore Roosevelt High School in Kent are being presented again this year by selected members of Roosevelts Choralworks, offering a variety of love songs, performed as solos, duets, trios and quartets.
Providing a different way to impress someone on Valentines Day, a serenade with a homemade Valentine can be purchased for one song at $25, two songs at $40 or three songs at $50. Call Donna Crews today or Thursday at (330) 676-8890 to reserve a time slot and choice of performance.
Choralworks, Roosevelts auditioned choir, and the Advanced Choral Ensemble, an ensemble from Choralworks, have recently been featured in two area events. On Jan. 31, they opened the day-long schedule of events at Kent State Universitys Martin Luther King Day Celebration. Later that evening, Choralworks and A.C.E.s were included in a line-up of musicians at the Kent Stage as part of Music on Main Street, a Rotary fund-raiser for polio eradication, organized by Walter Watson, president.
Currently, they are preparing for contest season, along with two other of Roosevelts four choirs. In April, they will be competing in the Smoky Mountain Music Festival in Gatlinburg, Tenn. Money raised through Valentines serenades will help offset the cost of this competition trip.
