I’m so excited about the Remembering WWII event this weekend!
We’re going to relive history. We’ll get to meet WWII veterans, hear their stories, watch live battle reenactments with reenactors dressed to the 9s, check out the vintage civilian & military vehicle show, and learn from historians about the war and surrounding times.
AND HEAR LIVE WARTIME MUSIC!
I’ve been organizing the music for this event, and let me tell you – it’s gonna be grand! Here are some of the titles you’ll hear:
Be Like a Kettle and Sing
The White Cliffs of Dover
Coming In On a Wing And a Prayer
We’re In the NAVY
Ac-cen-tchu-ate the Positive
Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy
How Deep is the Ocean
If You Really Love Me
It Hurts to Say Goodbye
I’ll be With You in Apple Blossom Time
Chattanooga Choo Choo
Let’s Remember Pearl Harbor
We’re going to have solos, duets, trios, quartets, quintets, AND a children’s choir, PLUS a Big Band concert at lunch time!
I’ll be singing three melodies made popular by my favorite wartime singer, Vera Lynn: If You Really Love Me, White Cliffs of Dover, & It Hurts to Say Goodbye.
I’ve been busy this month arranging the piano parts for the three pieces, and I can’t wait to sing them tomorrow for the vets tomorrow.
