In a touching tribute to the Canadian Armed Forces, the Cosmopolitan Music Society (CMS) fills the Winspear Centre with music, ceremony, and colour.
Presented by The Royal Canadian Legion, the annual Lest We Forget… A Musical Tribute concert marks the beginning of remembrance week. During this time leading up to November 11, Canadians remember and pay tribute to those who served the Canadian forces in World War I, World War II, Korea, the Gulf War, Afghanistan, and as peacekeepers around the world.
In addition to the parade of colours, remembrance at the cenotaph with the Last Post, and a photographic tribute to loved ones, Lest We Forget features the CMS Bands and Chorus, and guest Pipe Sergeant Dale McDonald of the Edmonton Police Service Pipes and Drums performing a varied repertoire, from grand military marches to popular wartime music.
J’Lyn Nye, Honorary Colonel of the 408 Tactical Squadron, returns as the event emcee. CMS bands and chorus are conducted by CMS Music Director and conductor Taina Lorenz and conductors Jamie Burns, Roy Townend, and Rita Burns.
A Silent Auction and lobby entertainment by the CMS Jazz Big Band starts at 6:00 pm, the concert begins at 7:00 pm.
