Sioux City singer-songwriter Jill Miller will perform at her 11th annual holiday Dec. 1 at the Orpheum Theatre. 

SIOUX CITY | Sioux City singer-songwriter Jill Miller will perform her 11th annual concert benefiting the Sunrise Retirement Community Dec. 1 at the Orpheum Theatre. 

The 7 p.m. show, called "Jill Miller Christmas: Believe," will feature holiday classics and some original songs written by Miller, including selections from her "King of Kings" CD, and a re-worked version of the classic song "Für Elise" that Miller calls "Song of the Night." 

"And one of the favorites is, we're going to do another bluegrass set this year, will be all new songs, and I know people are going to love it," Miller said. 

Miller will be accompanied by her band, as well as members of the Ponca High School choir.

And there will be some celebrity guest appearances -- Santa Claus and the Grinch Who Stole Christmas will be there. Miller said Santa and the Grinch add "some fun and some variety to the show."

The show will be about two hours long, with a 15 minute intermission. All the funds raised in the show will be given to the Sunrise Retirement Community, a place near and dear to Miller's heart -- several of her family members were involved in construction at Sunrise, and a sister worked there. 

"And then my father ended up living at Sunrise in their dementia unit for four years, before he passed away," Miller said. "We just have a very long history with Sunrise, and they just did outstanding care for my father."
