The Noteables chorale group will present their winter concert series, “Peace on Earth,” Dec. 9-11 in Salida and Buena Vista.

Performances will be at 7 p.m. Dec. 9 at Clearview Community Church, 457 Rodeo Road, Buena Vista; 7 p.m. Dec. 10 at Ascension Episcopal Church, 349 E St., Salida; and 3 p.m. Dec. 11 at Salida SteamPlant, 220 W. Sackett Ave.

Under the direction of Linda Taylor, the chorus will perform a variety of holiday music, including unusual arrangements of familiar carols, winter ballads, Christmas gospels and songs of peace and hope, a press release stated.

The Noteables, accompanied by their jazz band, will welcome the holiday season with “A Welsh Noel” and “Holiday Jazz.” Other songs include “What Child Is This?” and “Wexford Carol,” as well as “Aurora Borealis,” describing the winter phenomenon of the Alaskan skies.

Seven male singers will join the women and sing two rousing gospels, “Can You Hear the Angels?” and “Children Go Where I Send Thee.” An upbeat Latin round called “Gaudeamus Hodie,” the familiar “Sussex Carol,” “Grant Us Peace” and “Melt the Winter to Spring” will round out the program.

The concert will feature guest instrumentalists Oso Blanco, drums; Aidan Warner, saxophone; Kate Chiras, electric bass; and Brenda Covert, flute.

Suggested donation is $10 to help pay for the cost of music and publicity. For more information, call Taylor at 719-539-2428 or visit
