Let music be the messenger of love this Valentine's Day by treating your sweetheart to a serenade by talented vocalists from the Drake University Choir.


Drake's Singing Valentines include a song and up to a dozen red roses. Each Singing Valentine is a special delivery, whether it be presented at work, at home or at a romantic dinner.

Deliveries will be made from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 13, and from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 14, in Des Moines, Clive, Johnston, Urbandale, West Des Moines and Windsor Heights. In addition, evening deliveries will be available from 5 to 8 p.m. in Ankeny and Waukee. 

The choir is offering three packages:
  • True Romance, which offers a song and a single romantic rose for $25.

  • Cupid's Favorite delivers a song and six of the finest roses for $35.

  • Hopeless Romantic brings a special song and a full dozen roses for $60.


Proceeds will help fund the Chamber Choir's 2010 Tour of England and Drake Choir's 2012 European Tour. 

"No university funds are used for these trips, so community support is vital and greatly appreciated," said Aimee Beckmann-Collier, director of choral studies.

The deadline for ordering a Singing Valentine is noon Thursday, Feb. 12.
