Co-ed a cappella group Duelly Noted is preparing for its sixth annual concert tour during Hamilton’s winter break. The four-day tour will include performances in Connecticut, New Jersey and New York.
The tour will begin on Thursday, Jan. 7, with a 9:15 a.m. performance at Pomperaug Elementary School, 607 Main St., S., in Southbury, Conn. The group will then head down the street to the Southbury Senior Center (561 Main St., S.) for a 10:30 a.m. show.
On Friday, Jan. 8, Duelly Noted will travel to New Jersey to perform at the Bernardsville Public Library (N., 1 Anderson Hill Road), at 3:30 p.m. Then, it’s off to Brooklyn for a Saturday evening performance at the hip Soundance Studio in Williamsburg, (281 N. 7th St.). The show will begin at 7 p.m. Both performances are free and open to the public.
Duelly Noted concludes its winter tour on Sunday, Jan, 10, with a performance at Union College, 807 Union St., Schenectady. Duelly will be performing with the Union College Dutch Pipers and other groups from Union. The public is invited to attend.
Each Duelly Noted concert highlights a range of vocal styles and choreography. The group’s diverse repertoire often features many oldies including “Why Do Fools Fall In Love,” “The Way You Look Tonight,” and The Beach Boys' hit “God Only Knows,” as well as Disney classics. The set is rounded out with several pop songs including Fountains of Wayne’s “Stacy's Mom” and Duelly Noted’s very own “Telephone Medley,” an arrangement of phone-related songs.
The tour is funded by the Hamilton Student Activities office.
Duelly Noted was founded at Hamilton in the spring of 2008 by eight first-year students. The group has since grown to 15 members representing all classes. In its first six years, Duelly Noted has performed in several unique venues including the streets of Venice, Italy.
