Dal Richards Orchestra
Dal Richards began his 25 year run at the Roof of The Hotel Vancouver in 1940 and throughout his very long career, he was synonymous with Vancouver and “the twinkling harbour lights of Canada’s gateway to the Pacific”.
As Swing music was his passion from the first time he heard it, Dal was also synonymous with the big band sound; the music of of World War 2. Through the war, swing music came to symbolize freedom; freedom from tyranny; a freedom earned by the sacrifices of so many.
We will gather on Sunday, November 11th to remember those who didn’t return and those who did return to shape our world; their music, their energy, their enthusiasm for life and their dedication to the idea that freedom must triumph.
Please join the Dal Richards Orchestra on Remembrance Day as we offer our tribute to all people who serve and have served in the armed forces and as first responders through the music of World War 2.
