During Military Appreciation Month, join us for a powerful evening of music, visual arts, and narrative that chronicles the story of U.S. Army veteran Jaymes Poling and his journey through three deployments in Afghanistan and subsequent transition back home. Told by Poling, this autobiographical production explores the personal and emotional journey of military service, weaving Poling’s story with music by acclaimed trumpeter Dominick Farinacci and top jazz performers from around the country. Since its debut in 2017, Modern Warrior Live has created meaningful conversation about heroism, mental health, and reentry to civilian life.

This presentation also includes a companion Modern Warrior Experience featuring stories by and featuring local veterans paired in performance with Dominick Farinacci and other musicians.
