“Listening to a great choir is pleasure enough; listening to one composed of residents of New Directions makes the music all that sweeter. They have my undying support and admiration.”

“It’s been said, ‘What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger.’ I believe the most beautiful child of struggle is art. Witness the soulful, elegant sounds of the New Directions Veterans Choir. Survivors of war and homelessness, theirs is a song of healing, triumph and rebirth that the whole world needs to hear!”
 
— Paul Williams (Composer, Lyricist, Producer)

“Through singing,” George says, “we hope to let veterans who may be suffering know that there is hope for them.”
