Celebrate Peace

Today is Armistice Day, Veteran’s Day, Remembrance Day – no matter what it is called where you live, it is an opportunity to remember the fallen who gave their lives so we could enjoy ours in peace and freedom.

That seems like a good reason to give them their due through music.  There are so many things you could do at this point –
  • You could commemorate the original armistice and play the tunes of the day – there were some great tunes written at that time including Keep the Home Fires Burning, It’s a Long Way to Tipperary, or Carry Me Back to Ol’ Virginnie
  • You could play music from other post war eras including anything from Irving Berlin
  • You could compose your own pieces
  • you could play in a number of places including a VA home or for a veteran’s group or another civic group
  • You could, of course, do nothing 
Just play – and enjoy that you can in peace!
