Friends and colleagues of Canadian-born news anchor Peter Jennings mourned his death and celebrated his life at a memorial service located at New York City’s Carnegie Hall on Tuesday.

In honor of Jennings’ love for music, the service featured performances from first-class musicians such as cellist Yo Yo Ma; Celtic fiddler Natalie MacMaster; and legendary jazz trumpeters Clark Terry, Wynton Marsalis and John Faddis, who played “A Fanfare for Peter”.
