For Valentine’s Day, a combination of the NCHS City Singers and NCHS Expressions show choir brought back a special holiday tradition. Anyone in Nebraska City could order a Singing Valentine package for their sweetheart, family member, or friend! On Valentine’s Day, the choir groups went to the address given, singing a song of the buyer’s choice. A special song could be chosen out of a list of songs arranged by the choir director, Stephanie Stanek. 

Last year, in 2021, Singing Valentines were unfortunately canceled because of COVID restrictions. Mrs. Stanek said, “I was a little nervous for this year’s [2022] order turnouts. Singing Valentines has always been a fun event, but it’s also a fundraiser for our choir groups to be able to go to clinics during the school year.”

However, Mrs. Stanek was pleasantly surprised when the choirs completed over 30 orders on Monday, February 14th, 2022. That Monday was a busy day for the NCHS City Singers and NCHS Expressions, but she was very happy with the turnout. Next year, Mrs. Stanek hopes to have even more Singing Valentine orders and another successful day!
