Jeffersonland Chorus serenades Charlottesville with singing valentines

By  | 

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- An organization in Charlottesville is letting you give your loved one a unique gift this Valentine's Day.

The Jeffersonland Chorus brings flowers, chocolates and a serenade.

Susan Wilkinson, owner of Wilkinson Wealth Management, did not expect to be greeted at her office Thursday morning by a barbershop quartet.

"I walked into the conference room under a different pretense and I was greeted with a rose, chocolates and four gentlemen in tuxedos singing to me," she said.

The singing valentine was sent as a surprise by her staff at Wilkinson Wealth Management to let her know how much they appreciate her.

"I have staff second to none and it's just like them to do something like this," said Wilkinson.

The group is part of the Jeffesonland Chorus and is one of three quartets that gave serenades around Charlottesville for Valentine's Day.

"People enjoy it immensely. It's a wonderful experience," said singer Craig Scott.

He said most people react in the same way.

"There's shock, then denial and then, finally, acceptance. It's typically the three stages of Valentine's Day serenading," Scott said.

However, Wilkinson was not surprised.

"I knew something like this could happen," Wilkinson said. "It was fun. Embarrassing, but it was fun."

Scott said he is happy to use his voice to put a smile on other peoples' faces.

"There is not much I can do in my normal day-to-day that brings that kind of joy to people. So that's why we enjoy this so much," he said.
