Songs of Remembrance at Comox Legion, Saturday

Seventy years after the end of the Second World War, the music of this particular time in history still evokes powerful emotions.

As a gesture of thanks to the Comox Valley’s veterans and seniors, the Comox Legion, in conjunction with Serendipity Jazz (Jacqueline Lambeth – vocals, Ken Newman – piano, Bruce Macara – bass), will be presenting a special Remembrance Day ceremony and performance — Songs of Remembrance — at the Comox Legion on Saturday, Nov. 5 from 1 – 2:30 p.m.

The show will feature favourites from the First and Second World Wars – and the audience is welcome to sing along.

Jacqueline and Ken have been performing together on Vancouver Island for several years. She is a well-established, classically trained vocalist in the Comox Valley whose genres range from opera to Celtic, from musical theatre, to lyrical vocal jazz.

Ken’s background could not be more different as a university teacher and chemistry researcher.

However, together they both share a similar love of music.
