Celebration of Life for Alan Blanchette

2:00 PM: Informal
3:00 PM: Program

Alan Blanchette passed away at his home on Tuesday, September 22, 2015.

From its beginning, Alan was a driving force of The Rainbow Harmony Project. He served in many roles including founding member, conductor, assistant conductor, section leader, soloist, and chorister. Those of us who attended or performed in the Be Fabulous concert will never forget the "fabulous" reception that followed - every detail organized, supervised and perfectly prepared by Alan. His brilliance, musical expertise, rich bass voice and amazing sense of humour will live in our memories forever.

Rainbow Harmony Project has been asked to sing at Alan's Celebration of Life this Sunday.
We welcome you to join us to sing in his honour. There will be no rehearsal. The songs are:

  • Somewhere Over the Rainbow (unison)
  • Thank You for the Music by ABBA (harmony if you know it, unison if not)
  • How Could Anyone (harmony if you know it, unison if not)
