NORTHBOROUGH – For over fifteen years, Ashley Lang has been donning her festive valentine’s clothing and joining her fellow vocalists to bring a little Valentine’s Day joy to local residents. 

Lang is a member of the women’s choral group, Women of Note, based in Northborough. Singing Valentines have become a tradition and one of the group’s best fundraisers. Several of their award-winning quartets – and even two quintets this year – accept requests to serenade an unsuspecting recipient at their home, office, school, nursing home, or in restaurants. 

“We have also been to bus depots, radio stations, ice cream parlors, and even a cemetery once,” Lang recalls. 

To advertise the heartwarming service, the group has been using Facebook, their website and hanging flyers in libraries and cafes across central and eastern Massachusetts. 

It would seem that the romantic gesture does sometimes reap big rewards.

Lang shared a particularly memorable event, “The young man popped the question after we sang, and she said ‘Yes!”

The charge, regardless of distance, is just $50 for two songs and a card, while an additional $10 will buy a rose or a box of chocolates. The front page of their website provides a form to fill out with directions on how to pay through PayPal. 

If the loved one is too far away for an in-person visit the group will arrange to do a singing valentine on the phone for just $15. For more information, visit https://womenofnote.org/
