The Aviation Museum of NH announces a special Vefromevent2teran's Day Program which will take place at the museum Thursday, November 9, 2017, at 7:00 p.m. "Songs and Stories of WWII" will be presented by Curt Bessette and Jenn Kurtz. This program honors WWII veterans and their generation through Mr. Bessette's original songs and related stories about his father and composite stories shared from veterans over the years. There are a number of popular war-era cover songs integrated into the program. WWII memorabilia will be on display. 

Curt Bessette says that the presentation is intended to honor all veterans. "Though the title of the show infers that it's all related to WWII we talk about how we are here to honor veterans and their generation of ALL wars. We are not here to make any political statements...we are here to honor the lives and sacrifices of those veterans and their families. Both our fathers were WWII veterans...and that was the initial inspiration for this show, but the overall focus became a desire to keep alive the stories of these veterans."

Curt Bessette has performed throughout the United States. He was a Songwriting Finalist in folk festivals in Texas and New York. He has recorded four CDs of original songs, instructs music in Portsmouth and teaches songwriting in Adult Ed programs in Maine and New Hampshire.

Jenn Kurtz is a respected harmony singer who performs in numerous venues throughout New England. She has an extensive social services background, working with members of the WWII generation.

Thank you to Hearthside Reality for generous sponsorship of this program.

Tickets are $10 for non-members, $8 for Museum Members, and Veterans receive free admission.
