Noteworthy, Marquette chorus combine

CALUMET - After coming together in 2007, the women's chorus Noteworthy and the Marquette Male Chorus are reuniting this weekend for a cause.

The concert will take place at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, with all proceeds going to benefit the Calumet Theatre.

"Noteworthy always puts on a concert for a nonprofit or a worthy cause, and this year we decided on the Calumet Theatre," Noteworthy Director Joan Petrelius said.

The two groups are different in nature, as Noteworthy is more acapella and barbershop, while the Marquette Male Chorus is accompanied by a piano with a more choral feel, but Petrelius believes the combination will please all listeners.

"The audience will really enjoy the variety," she said.

Noteworthy members were recently discussing how much they enjoyed the concert in 2007, and by coincidence, the Marquette Male Chorus was looking for a chance to play the Calumet Theatre sometime soon, according to Petrelius, so the timing worked out for everyone.

Although both groups will be performing on their own throughout much of the concert, they will combine for a few songs at the end, including the Copper Country anthem, "The Blue Skirt Waltz," "God Bless America" and "The Battle Hymn of the Republic."

Noteworthy, which is into its 15th year as a performing group, will perform a number of tunes, including some familiar favorites.

"We're doing a lot of well-known pieces like 'Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend,' 'Give My Regards to Broadway' and 'Shine On Harvest Moon,'" Petrelius said.

The Marquette Male Chorus, meanwhile, will sing a wide variety of songs, including "Homeland" by Gustav Holst and "Song for the Unsung Hero." They also will throw a few curveballs in, like "We May Not Be Vampires (But We're Still Men!)."

Tickets are general seating and are $10. Tickets are available by phone or by visiting the Calumet Theatre Box Office. Box office hours are noon through 5 p.m. Wednesday through Friday, and two-and-a-half hours before showtime. For more information, call the Calumet Theatre Box office at 337-2610 or check the web page at and at the theatre's Facebook page.
