One thing you don’t see much anymore on Valentines is your basic singing candy-gram.
For the past 30 years or so, Jacksonville’s own Big Orange Chorus has delivered such 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 Thursday, they’ll be delivering even more to homes or places of work.
It’s not too late to book your big surprise
For $80, during 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.
Place your order – soon – online or by phone at 904-287-1896.
A Chorus coordinator will contact you to schedule the time and place of delivery for your extra-special Valentines message.
