Duelly Noted has arrived back on the hill after completing our second annual concert tour over winter break!
Three of the performances on the four-day tri-state tour were held in the hometowns of current members: Queensbury High School in Queensbury, N.Y., home of Madison Malone Kircher ’14; Newtown Congregational Church in Newtown, Conn., home of Andrew Nichols ’14; and Our Lady of the Magnificat Church in Kinnelon, N.J., home of Mackenzie Leavenworth ’15. We also performed in a Thursday evening concert alongside a cappella groups at Union College in Schenectady, N.Y.
Each hour-long concert highlighted a range of vocal styles and fun choreography. Duelly Noted’s diverse repertoire often features many "oldies" including "Why Do Fools Fall In Love," "The Way You Look Tonight," and "Who Loves You" as well as Disney classics "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" and "Part of Your World”. The set was rounded out with several pop songs including "Lay All Your Love on Me," "Thriller," and "Zombie Jamboree."
The free performances also helped raise money for local charities. Enthusiastic audiences in Newtown and Kinnelon donated a combined amount of more than $800 in cash plus several bags of canned goods to benefit their towns' food pantries.

It is with great excitement that we announce the release of our latest single: Duelly Pop!
From the single notes:
After wowing audiences with this fabulous medley at Hamilton in 2010, Duelly Noted is thrilled to finally share with the world three of its favorite things: pop divas, hot mash-ups, and vocal music at its finest.
