Posted

LOWVILLE — The Adirondack Community Chorus, directed by Peg Nuspliger, will present “Sing We Now of Christmas,” a concert to benefit the Lewis County Historical Society, which will be held at the Lowville Baptist Church at 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 28.

The music, a beloved arrangement by Harry Simeone, features carols, hymns and secular songs of the season, with four-hand piano accompaniment by Mel Chalker of Lowville and Judy Barker of Old Forge, percussion by Angela Bartelotte of Port Leyden, and narration by Miyako Shanely, also from Old Forge.

“Sing We Now of Christmas” is based upon the 1958 recording of the same name by the Harry Simeone Chorale. Classic Christmas melodies include “Angels We Have Heard on High,” “Joy to the World,” “Rise Up Shepherds,” “O’ Little Town of Bethlehem,” “Good King Wenceslas,” “O’ Holy Night,” “Go Tell It on The Mountain,” and many more.

Featured soloists represent many locations from around the North Country. They are: Brian Johnston (Big Moose), Becky Kelly (Chase Lake), Don Mallette (Brantingham), Elizabeth Zehr (Lowville), Michael Ferris (Forestport), Mary Leach (Blue Mountain Lake), Todd Galarneau (Constableville), Ingrid Narkin (Old Forge), and Claire Haile (New Hartford). Singers and instrumentalists also represent Boonville, Port Leyden, Lyons Falls, Inlet, Talcottville, Eagle Bay, Rome and Alder Creek, as well as high school students from Lowville Academy and South Lewis Central School.

An additional Christmas concert, entitled “Around the World at Christmas,” will be performed by the chorus on Sunday, Dec. 11, at Forest Church in Lyons Falls.
