Art in the Aftermath of War

March 12, 2015  • Aspen Institute Arts Program

The MusiCorps Wounded Warrior Band, the performance component of MusiCorps, is made up of injured veterans who became musicians through MusiCorps. The band has wowed millions of people with powerful performances that speak to the talent and resilience of its members. Formed in response to the crisis of returning service members injured in Iraq and Afghanistan, MusiCorps is a conservatory-level music rehabilitation program that helps wounded warriors play music and recover their lives.

Timothy Donley, the group’s lead singer, performs “Wide River to Cross,” by Levon Helm, with MusiCorps founder Arthur Bloom.
