The Noteables and You’ve Got Male choral groups will present their winter concert series “Stars On Snow”, December 7-9 in Salida and Buena Vista.
Under the direction of Linda Taylor, the women’s and men’s choruses will perform a wide variety of holiday music, including unusual arrangements of familiar carols, winter ballads, songs of peace and hope and sacred selections.
The Noteables will welcome in the Christmas season with “A Winter Noel”. Other songs include a Celtic version of “People Look East”, the playful “Candy Covered Gingerbread House” and “Stars On Snow”, describing a shimmering winter night. You’ve Got Male will continue with “Do You Know the Way To Bethlehem?”, a jazzy version of “We Three KIngs” and a hilarious arrangement of Jingle Bells set to the melodies from the “Nutcracker Suite”.
The two choruses will join together to sing seven songs, including the foot tapping “Sing, Mary, Sing”, followed by a partner song combining “Children Go Where I Send Thee” with the familiar “Go Tell It On the Mountain”, the jubilant “Gloria” and “The Yearning” which announces the coming of Emmanuel. The choruses will invite the audience to sing along with “Joyful and Triumphant”, a medley of favorite Christmas carols.
