Warrior Chorus is a major new national humanities program by New York’sAquila 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 Warrior Chorus, followed by a discussion moderated by Cleveland native and MacArthur Fellow, Professor Thomas Palaima (University of Texas), Stacey Peebles (Center College), John M. Meyer (University of Texas), James Sheeler (Case Western Reserve University), and James Dawes (Macalester College).
This program is part of the first Cleveland Humanities Festival (CHF) which will be held in Spring 2016 around a core of events taking place April 1-10, coordinated by the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities of Case Western Reserve University. Over a dozen institutions in University Circle and the Greater Cleveland area will collaborate in programing on the theme of Remembering War.
