Warrior Chorus is an award winning national initiative that trains veterans to present innovative public programs based on ancient literature. Programming conceived and performed by veterans will focus on critical social issues including war, conflict, comradeship, home, and family and will include veteran-led readings, discussions and the innovative use of New Media. Training has occurred in New York City, Los Angeles and Texas.

“I liked that the experiences were filtered through classical literature. This distance allows both performers and audience members to use their imaginations in an empathetic way, rather than merely evoking sympathy. . . Classical literature places the emphasis back on character and story, and helps reject the laziness of labels. The abstract nature of myth also allows individuals to flesh out their owns experiences with some combination of memory and imagination.” US Army Sergeant & Warrior Chorus Participant
