The Sound of Silence
meets COVID-19

A timely parody of Simon and Garfunkle’s famous song

Hello all Theatre and other Entertainment viewers on Westmount Magazine,

As you have undoubtedly noticed, many theatre, music and other entertainment gatherings have been curtailed for the immediate future due to the worldwide pandemic of COVID-19.

My articles for the next little while may deal with past entertainment presentations that we didn’t get a chance to highlight… but as to current postponed or paused events, there will be, alas, silence.

Please enjoy this parody of the famous Simon and Garfunkel song, The Sound of Silence, retitled Fight the Virus, by Alvin Oon of Singapore.
