THE romance of Valentine's Day will arrive early this week as Ipswich's own acappella choir the Miner Chords perform classic barber shop love songs.

The group takes to the stage at the Old Ipswich Court House.

President Howard Kennedy said he and his performers would be singing to their own partners and hope songs like Hello Mary Lou will get the crowd in a romantic mood.

"Most of us will have partners there on the night," he said.

"There will be good harmonic songs it's a different type of singing."

The show begins at 7.15pm. Call 3389 3555 for bookings.

The concert is in aid of the Queensland Flood appeal.

The Miner Chords practice on Wednesday nights and are looking for members.
