Warrior Chorus is a major new national humanities program by New York’s Aquila Theatre Company, training 100 veterans in four regional centers to present scholar-led public programming based on classical literature. The programming performed by veterans focuses on critical social issues including war, conflict, comradeship, home, and family and includes veteran-led readings, discussions and the innovative use of New Media. This event will feature a performance by the New York Warrior Chorus, followed by a discussion moderated by Cleveland native and MacArthur Fellow, Professor Thomas Palaima of the University of Texas. Other participants include Stacey Peebles (Center College), John M. Meyer (University of Texas), James Sheeler (Case Western Reserve University), and James Dawes (Macalester College).
This event is co-sponsored by MOCA Cleveland and the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities.
