Musicians performing at Jack Layton's funeral

State funeral for NDP Leader Jack Layton, Saturday 2 pm, Roy Thomson Hall

From what I've been able to glean from the web and other media, Saturday's funeral for Opposition Leader Jack Layton will be filled with music and poignant memories. Some highlights are sure to include:

Eulogy - To be delivered by Stephen Lewis

Officiant - Pastor Reverend Dr. Brent Hawkes will deliver a couple of specific messages Jack wanted to be read at his funeral.

Rise Up - Parachute Club singer / writer Lorraine Segato will sing her anthemic tune.

Hallelujah - Steven Page of Barenaked Ladies will perform this haunting, melancholy, yet uplifting song.

Quebecois singer Martin Deschamps met Layton several times and is planning on traveling from Montreal to Toronto to perform at Roy Thomson Hall.

The service is intended to be religiously and politically inclusive, and will have readings from Christian, Jewish, Muslim and other traditions.

On Saturday night the CN Tower will glow with orange light in honour of Jack Layton and his affiliation with the NDP (whose main colour is orange), a really kind gesture and symbolic of Toronto's love for this passionate, thoughtful man.
