Hello my dear lovely readers! It’s February, which means Valentine’s Day and the season of love. If you are anything like me, even when single or too young to date, this is was the best holiday ever. It’s always been considered a magical time for me, because it was when you get to express your love to those close to you. When I was young, my parents gave us each a little Valentine’s Day gift to show their love for us, and I would do the same for my family. Whatever your relationship status, I know everyone has loved ones in their lives, whether it be romantic kind of love or not.

This Valentine’s Day event is full of classical love songs by the Swingtime Big Band, performing tunes originally made great by Glenn Miller, Artie Shaw, Count Basie, Buddy Rich, Les Brown, Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, and Dean Martin. Get lost in the music and let yourself get struck down by cupid’s arrow of love and joy! And maybe, stir up some of those fond memories of when you first heard these tunes. Who knows, maybe you’ll be making new ones with your sweetie.
