Leominster Veterans Memorial Center
International Veterans Chorus
Director Fran Cooley

The International Veterans’ Chorus began in September 2002 under the direction of Donna Allard, with the idea of educating children in our schools about the important role our veterans have played so that we may live in a free democracy.  They have taught both children and adults alike that people from all over the world can live in peace and harmony.  Through their music, dedication and warm smiles they have shared not only the love of music but also the love of country and patriotism with thousands of people. 


Veterans from foreign lands are singing beautiful music with the veterans of the United States. Because of these men and women we know it is possible to respect and honor all people regardless of race, religion or the country of their birth.  Through the years we have had singers from the British and Hungarian army, as well and the Japanese ground forces. We have American Veterans who served in the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard, Reserves and the National Guards.  Our veterans served during WWII, the Korean War, the Vietnam Conflict and during peace times and range in age from 44 to 95.

We have sung at local schools for patriotic and school events along with civic and patriotic events in Leominster, Fitchburg, Winchendon, Lunenburg include Ashburnham, Ayer, Worcester and Athol.  Some of these events have been the Wreaths Across America at Worcester State University, Moving Vietnam Wall in Fitchburg, Memorial Day Services at the Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Winchendon, Fitchburg 4th of July Parade, the Johnny Appleseed Festival in Leominster, Starburst Festival in Leominster, White Cross Ceremonies for Memorial Day in Leominster and Fitchburg, Sholan Farms Apple Blossom Festival in Leominster, the Leominster and Fitchburg Mayors inaugurations, the Fitchburg Public Library, Family Links in Leominster, Saint. Cecilia's Parish Christmas in Arcadia, and local nursing homes to name a few.
