Veterans who love to sing + Singers who love Veterans
Founder: Richard Gibson
Associate Conductor: Brian Steele
Veterans who love to sing + singers who love Veterans believe in the healing power of music, in the bonds created by working together as an ensemble, and in honoring the resilience and valor of the human spirit.
The Lyric Opera of Kansas City is proud to have helped launch the Veterans Chorus. This group has now become an independent entity, and we wish the group every success in the future.
