BOUNTIFUL – A perfect Valentine’s Day evening doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. In fact, it doesn’t have to cost anything at all.

Both the Davis and West Bountiful Arts Councils are offering free concerts this Feb. 14. A chamber music concert titled “Music for Lovers” will be held at the Kaysville Tabernacle at 7:30 p.m., while singer Susie Carter will be at West Bountiful City Hall at 7 p.m.

“It’s a great free date,” said Kathy Skidmore, one of the organizers behind the Davis Chamber Concert Series. “It would be a wonderful thing for a husband to take his wife to. I’m sure he’d score points.”

“Music for Lovers” focuses largely on music from the Romantic period, an era that spans from Beethoven all the way to Rachmaninoff. A cello and piano trio will perform works by Felix Mendelssohn, whose birthday is in early February, while a string quartet will perform an aria by Italian composer Giacomo Puccini.

“These are very familiar and beloved melodies,” said Skidmore.

There will also be performances of several of Broadway’s best-known odes to romance, including “Maria” and “One Hand, One Heart” from West Side Story and “Falling in Love” from “Thoroughly Modern Millie.”

“It’s one of our most popular concerts,” said Skidmore.

Broadway love songs will also make an appearance at the West Bountiful concert, along with well-known romantic pop hits. Local performer Susie Carter, who regularly performs at Dick’s Market during the holiday season, is returning for her second Valentine’s Day concert.

 “The songs are beautiful,” said Colleen Maloy, who organized the concert.

For those not familiar with Carter’s performances, Maloy adds that the woman is a draw even when she’s not singing.

“Susie has a fun personality,” she said. “She makes you feel like a good friend.”

The Kaysville Tabernacle is located at 198 W. Center Street. West Bountiful City Hall is located at 550 N. 800 West.
