This year, surprise your Valentine with song.

For more than 30 years, Jacksonville’s very own Big Orange Chorus has delivered singing Valentines and other “love-themed musical presentations” to the unsuspecting in Clay, Duval, Nassau and St. Johns counties in northeast Florida.

Starting at 8 a.m. on Thurs., Feb. 13, they’ll be delivering even more to homes or places of work.

Book your big surprise today

For $80, within a scheduled hour’s window of opportunity, your Valentine gets a personal serenade by one of nine traveling quartets from the chorus – two love songs – a single red rose, a giant Hershey’s® Kiss, a photo and a personalized card with greetings and affections.

For $65, you can schedule your candy-gram for either morning or evening – two love songs, single red rose, Kiss®, photo, personalized card.

Additional roses, chocolates and other options available.

Valentines will be delivered Feb. 13-15.

Place your order – soon – online or by phone at 904-355-SING.

Once you place your order, a Chorus coordinator will contact you to schedule the time and place of delivery for your extra-special Valentines message.
