Peace day remembers war

Lai Utovou will perform at Tewantin''s Remembrance Day ceremony.

Lai Utovou, hit sensation from Channel 7’s All Together Now, will perform at Noosa Council’s Looking Forward to Peace Remembrance Day community event.

Utovou will join Kimberley Hodgson from Disney’s Aladdin the Musical, the popular Andrews Sisters Tribute, home-grown Noosa Chorale, and students from the Tewantin State School.

“The event will feature music from the World War I, II and Vietnam War eras. Noosa Chorale’s Tunes from the Trenches – a medley of popular World War I songs that range from jaunty to poignant – is sure to be a hit,” Noosa Council’s heritage coordinator, Jane Harding said.

“The Andrews Sisters Tribute singers will also be performing their much-loved repertoire of toe-tapping tunes from the forties and fifties.”

The Chorale’s performance coincides with the peace flotilla on the river. It’s a re-enactment of a 1918 flotilla in which Tewantin locals celebrated the end of the war.

Ms Harding said more than 25 boats and other craft were set to join the flotilla, decked in patriotic colours, just as the boat owners who took part 100 years ago did.

The event begins at Tewantin’s Memorial Park at noon on Sunday 11 November at Tewantin Memorial Park, immediately following the Tewantin Noosa RSL Sub Branch Remembrance Day service, and concludes at 4pm.
