TOWNSEND -- Join the Townsend Historical Society in celebrating the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Armistice ending World War I. Townsend will join in the nationwide event of tolling church bells commemorating the historic cessation of fighting on Nov. 11, 1918, at 11 a.m.
All town churches have been invited to participate in this historic moment.
At 3:30 p.m. in the Great Hall of Memorial Hall, a concert presented by the Townsend Historical Society, conducted by The Bob Page Jazz Trio will be performed showcasing the music of the time.
The Bob Page Jazz Trio performs regularly in the New York Metro area with a summer residency at Moonstruck in Asbury Park, New Jersey for over 15 years. Members include founder Bob Page (piano), Justin Lee (bass) and Carmen Galati (drums).
Bob comes to us from Pennsylvania and has enjoyed performing with such jazz musicians as Jake Hanna, Earl May, Mousey Alexander and Remo Palmier. The New York Times calls the Bob Page Jazz Trio ,"Keepers of the Keys," while Lucid Culture claims, "An animated performance of standards."
