Serenade your sweetheart

  • Feb. 5, 2014 6:16 p.m.

Charm your sweetheart with a song this Valentine’s Day.

If you’re not much of a singer, Wild Rose Harmonizers are there to help you with that soulful song to express your love.

Available for hire, the quartet will visit your loved one and sing them a love song on Valentine’s Day. And the group of vocalists is willing to make Valentine’s Day even more special by travelling to your sweetheart and surprising them at their home, work place, restaurant, bank or hospital room.

David Crozier-Smith, long-standing member of the Harmonizers, said that his favourite part of the group’s performance is always, “The reactions that we get from the people who we are singing to.

“Some times we are hired to sing to men and they often get a little squirmy,” added Crozier-Smith. “It can be anything from sheer embarrassment to the odd tear.”

Fellow Harmonizer Fran Lavoie jokingly added that “Depending on how well they sing,” the reactions are mixed.

However, the Harmonizers’ classic sound comes fresh out of a decade filled to brim with romance and chivalry that many love to swoon over still to this day.

The group’s appeal has brought tears of joy to the faces of women for over 30 years in Red Deer and Central Alberta and they want to bring that joy to many more this Valentine’s Day. “They are always totally surprised and don’t know that we are coming and the ladies are always just thrilled,” added Danny Schmidt.

“We’ll go anywhere and sing to anyone.”

Schmidt added that the most popular destinations are nursing homes, seniors’ lodges and care centres.

“We just love singing to the public and a number of the seniors’ lodges we go to just respond incredibly well to our singing.”

Crozier-Smith added, “The older people just get really involved with our singing and it’s also just about bringing other people entertainment through our songs and music.”

Anyone interested in booking the Harmonizers should book as soon as possible, as the group books up fast.

For bookings call Ron at 403-347-2145 or Fran at 403-347-0436.

Requests must be received by Feb. 12th.
