Due to the pandemic and limited poppy sales, a number of online performances will mark Remembrance Day this year, including Western Canada Theatre, the Cantabile Singers of Kamloops and local band Loops.
Western Canada Theatre will host a stream of performers reading poems, singing songs and reading letters of remembrance.
A link will be posted on Western Canada Theatre's website at wctlive.ca.
Choir assembles virtually to remember
A virtual choir performance will be presented by the Cantabile Singers of Kamloops, with singers recording themselves in isolation and then compiled together for later release.
The performance will feature four songs, including music director Ryan Noakes' choral rendition of In Flanders Fields.
Anyone can watch the performance starting at 7 p.m. on the Cantabile Singers of Kamloops YouTube page at bit.ly/cantabile-youtube.
Going live for the Legion
Another set of performances, by local band Loops, will be streamed live on Facebook throughout the day, beginning at noon.
The band has asked for stories and remembrances to read during each of the three live shows.
Band members Kevin Roy and Jon Fennell have dedicated the shows to veterans and are raising funds for the Royal Canadian Legion through GoFundMe.
Song requests and stories can be shared with the band through their Instagram page at instagram.com/official_loops, while live stream performances, at noon, 2 p.m. and 4 p.m., will stream on their Facebook page at facebook.com/officalloops.
