Clear your calendars this November for a truly inspiring patriotic performance experience! Marine Captain Kirk Troen, Chief Warrant Officer Mike Smith, and the Animado Events team have joined forces to introduce

Hearts and Hopes of Heroes


What is ‘Hearts and Hopes of Heroes’?

Hearts and Hopes of Heroes is a heart-warming youth tribute honoring all veterans. Young people from around the country will come together to perform as part of a 300-person mass choir and a multimedia presentation that highlight the life of veterans, the adventure of new experiences, and shared hardships and triumphs.

You’ve never experienced a performance like this before!!

Why a Veterans Day Performance?

Veterans are the heart, soul, and backbone of this great country.  Animado Events Director Kirk Troen and Producer/Narrator Mike Smith recognized the need to give students of all ages a chance to meet with and honor these warriors.

More importantly, they realized that veterans have a story to share with young people.  Hearts and Hopes of Heroes brings both together in a magnificently meaningful way!

Who Can Participate?

Students of all ages and choirs of all sizes are invited to participate.  The goal is to fill the risers with the uplifting sounds of patriotic revelry!

What About the Music?

Chief Warrant Officer Mike Smith (Producer and Narrator) has curated 10 selections guaranteed to make both choirs and crowds swell with pride during the 35-minute performance.  Registered groups have immediate access to the music so they can begin rehearsing.
