Singing Valentines

The Cape Fear Chordsmen invite you to consider helping us with our annual Singing Valentines Event. Each year we send quartets out into the Wilmington area to deliver a Live Singing Valentine to your sweetheart. We will deliver to your home, your workplace, a favorite restaurant, or just about anywhere within reason. Besides the two love songs, we provide a rose, and a card from you. We can sing to guys or gals, you choose. We offer a very unique gift that will last a lifetime. Follow this link for more information and a sample of delivery. This link also provides a form to fill out should you like to purchase a CFC Singing Valentine. This year our quartets will be available only on Wednesday February 14, 2024.

Acapella Spirit

Acapella Spirit was founded in December, 2022 – following the Cape Fear Chordsmen “Free Lessons” initiative funded by The Carolinas District of the Barbershop Harmony Society. We are a Mixed Chorus of women and men, open to adults 18 years and older.

Our mission is to bring people together to celebrate the strength, beauty and fun of unaccompanied voices raised in song. While we are ‘born’ of Barbershop music, our musical choices will not be limited to only Barbershop-style arrangements. as our repertoire and experience grow, we look forward to sharing the fun with our community!

We meet at 7:00 PM each Thursday, at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Wilmington, NC- 4313 Lake Avenue, across from Roland-Grise Middle School. Our Chorus Manager is Thea Hagepanos.

Contact us by email at acapellaspirit040@gmail.com. We can also be reached by leaving a phone message with the Cape Fear Chordsmen at 910.541.1256
