The New Directions Veterans Choir will present a free informal mini-performance and question and answer session on Tuesday, November 13, from noon–1:00 p.m. The event will take place in Stapleton Library in front of Java City.
This program precedes the group’s Lively Arts Ovations! concert being presented on November 13, 2012, at 8:00 p.m. in Fisher Auditorium.
Comprised of formerly homeless veterans who enrolled in the New Directions program in Los Angeles, the New Directions Veterans Choir is an award-winning a cappella group that sings renditions of doo-wop, soul, traditional gospel, and popular music. They have been featured on NBC Nightly News and E! Entertainment Television, reached the finals on NBC’s America’s Got Talent, and given over 100 performances, including on The Donny and Marie Show, at the Democratic National Convention, and for members of the United States Congress. However, the group’s members have never forgotten their humble roots or their message of hope and redemption.
