    Vocalist Alison Lewis will join Helix Collective for a concert paying tribute to favorite songs of the World War II era, including songs that motivated the allies to victory.

    The program will include WWII song selections from France, the U.K., the Soviet Union, and the United States. Songs such as “Le Chant des Partisans,” the song of the French Resistance, “Accentuate the Positive” from the United States, “Katyusha,” “Blue Kerchief,” and “Dark is the Night” from the Soviet Union, and “We’ll Meet Again” and “Run, Rabbit, Run” from the UK will be included.

    “Celebrate Victory in Europe Day with Helix Collective” is presented by the Russian-speaking board of West Hollywood. A presentation honoring West Hollywood resident veterans of World War II will begin at 11 a.m.

    Helix Collective will be dressed in their 1940s best for the concert and encourage attendees to do the same.





    Alison was described by Cabaret Scenes as, “a singer with a hauntingly beautiful voice who transformed the ordinary into the extraordinary with brilliant arrangements and vocal experimentation.” No stranger to stages large and small, Alison has performed as a soloist at venues ranging from Disney Concert Hall to Lincoln Center, in genres including world music, musical theater, jazz, R&B, classical, and gospel choirs. She has additionally performed the national anthem for the LA Lakers, the Clippers, the 49ers and the Golden State Warriors. A seasoned session singer, Alison’s voice can be heard in a multitude of films, TV series and videogames. Her debut solo album, Seven, received much national and international acclaim, as well as placed in the top 40 in the RMR and CMJ charts for eight weeks.

    When not singing, Alison may be found facilitating community singing workshops through the Skid Row based nonprofit, Urban Voices Project, providing speech language pathology services, and/or coaching individual singers. www.alisonlewismusic.com


    Helix Collective are classical musicians busting out of the traditional mold. From crossover dance music, to storytelling, to film, television, and video game music, the Los Angeles-based ensemble takes the best of classical chamber music and makes it the life of the party.

    Variety Magazine praised Helix Collective’s musical range moving from “moody urgency and edgy chamber-music sound” to the “sweetly romantic evoking wide-open spaces.”

    Helix “has a little something for everyone: those who like their classics straight up, with a contemporary edge to it, or with populist appeal.” Called “dizzyingly virtuosic with exquisite musicianship and world-class range” by The Free Times and praised for “beyond-the-ordinary programming.”

    Like the double helix, the ensemble is rearrangeable, flexible, and fuses the DNA of classical music into worlds where it’s never gone before. For more, visit: www.helixcollective.org.
