2023:  Singing Valentines Are Back!

Recent pandemic viruses may be leaving the air, but love is still lingering there…as evidenced by the return of Singing Valentines and the Blue Ridge’s current quartets, Mint Condition and Off the Spots!

Mint Condition Sings

On September 27 and 28, 2019, Mint Condition sang at several events, including an Ice Cream Social sponsored by the Hearing Assessment Center (Warrenton), a Salvation Army fund raiser (Culpeper), a Day Spring Mennonite Church fund raiser (Bealeton), and the engagement of a lovely couple.

Barbershop Quartet Day

The Mint Condition quartet strolled the streets of Old Town Warrenton on Barbershop Quartet Day (April 11, 2019), singing old favorites.  Smiles lit up many faces in response.

Singing Valentines can happen at home, at work, at a restaurant…wherever your sweetie happens to be.  Here’s a sampling of snaps from the 2020 Valentines and beyond.
