Classy serenade for Valentine's Day

Third-graders in Barbara O'Sullivan's and assistant teacher Melissa Hughes' class at Spring Hill Elementary received a special treat Thursday with a performance by the Sunset Quartet. The Sunset Quartet, which is one of several groups with the Hernando Harmonizers, sang Valentine's Day requests in Homosassa and Spring Hill to celebrate the romantic holiday. The group's style of music is known as barbershop harmony, which is a style of a cappella, or vocal music unaccompanied by instruments. Several groups from the Harmonizers, based in Spring Hill, are raising money for the nonprofit group with musical valentines today and Saturday. Recipients are serenaded with two love songs and receive a long-stem silk red rose, a personalized valentine card and a photograph of the occasion. To schedule a performance, call (352) 686-7559 or (352) 684-7931.
