RED BANK - Free beginner singing lessons are available for men who like to sing. Maybe you sing in the shower or the car, or have sung in a school chorus, a community theater musical or a church choir; the Chorus of the Atlantic is ready to teach you how to enhance that love for singing.

"Give us five Tuesday evenings," said the group's musical director, Craig J. Page, "and we'll give you the skills you need to experience all the fun of solo or group singing."


The course, called "Ready, Set, Sing!" is conducted by Page, a music educator, and associate musical director Kirk Thomson. Both beginning and experienced male singers are welcome. The class size is limited to 12 men. All materials will be provided at no cost.

As part of its mission to promote singing as a fun activity for the general public, the Chorus of the Atlantic offers the 5-week course of SINGING LESSONS twice a year in the Spring and Fall.

Many folks like chocolate.  Flowers are definitely a plus.  A reservation at a quiet restaurant is a nice touch. But if you want to make a lifelong impression, consider the gift of song.

St. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and now is the time to order a Singing Valentine from a male barbershop quartet in Monmouth County.

The Chorus of the Atlantic, Red Bank Area Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society each year sends uniformed quartets throughout the region to serenade lovers in four-part harmony. The quartets have performed in homes, offices, restaurants, warehouses, schools, even a police academy. They will go anywhere to bring your message of love.

For only $60, your loved one will receive two love songs, a long-stem rose, and a memory to last a lifetime.

You can schedule a quartet visit for any one of five days: Tuesday, Feb 11th through Saturday, Feb 15th by calling Jon Greene at 732-583-1684.
