Veterans Choir

On Fridays in June, Southminster hosts Oregon’s first Veteran’s Choir. This is a 10-week pilot project through Washington County for Veterans and Veteran Advocates to address social isolation and mental illness through music and songwriting.

Our mission is to create a community of comradery that unites the brotherhood and sisterhood of people who have served. Together we will disrupt isolation and bring awareness to the Veteran story through choral singing and songwriting. The Oregon Veteran’s Choir will be of musical service in the community by singing at Veteran’s events and community concerts. If you have a desire to be a part of a community and seek a space to share your experiences with service trauma, including PTSD, this is the choir for you. For more information or to join, contact Crystal Akins at (503) 358-6143 or crystal@communitymusicmission.org
