Noteworthy, the Copper Country’s women’s barbershop chorus, will perform its annual Christmas concert at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church in Hancock Thursday (Dec. 8) at 7:00pm.
“A Noteworthy Christmas” also features a vocal ensemble from Hancock High School.
There is no charge for admission, and a free-will offering will be taken to benefit Copper Country Habitat for Humanity.
Noteworthy will perform a program ranging from the lighthearted “It’s a Marshmallow World” to devout songs of the Christmas story.
Among them is a richly layered rendition of “Mary, Mary” with a calypso beat and “The Birthday of a King.”
Other holiday favorites on the program include “Christmas Dreams,” “Jingle Bell Jazz,” “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?” and the nostalgic “Marvelous Toy.”
“We’re also reviving one of our favorite characters from past concerts in a fun new song, ‘Hilma, Da Yooper Reindeer,” said Noteworthy director Joan Petrelius.
“This is music that everyone loves, and we’re happy to support an organization that does so much good in our community,” Petrelius said. “We’re also thrilled to have the singers from Hancock High joining us this year.”
Music teacher Autumn Lake and her students Rachel Nulf and Vanessa Dulong will perform “Adeste Fideles” and “Cantique De Noel.”
In addition, the Copper Notes quartet, including Shelba Marietti, Kelly Ylitalo, Sharon Kisiel and Carla Johnson, will be singing “‘Twas in the Moon of Wintertime.”
The quartet One Accord, including Marcia Goodrich, Sara Niemeyer, Petrelius and Jean Rilei, will perform “He’ll Be Coming Down the Chimney,” a holiday spinoff of “She’ll Be Coming Down the Mountain.”
