Sea Chanters - for a great experience!
They frequently perform for the president, vice president and numerous congressional, military and foreign dignitaries. They’ve also had appeared on"Larry King Live", "CBS This Morning", and at the premier of the movie, “Pearl Harbor”. They’ve shared the stage with greats like Perry Como, Marian Anderson, Kenny Rogers, and Lionel Richie. And now they are coming to Hagerstown to share their amazing vocal talent this Sunday evening, July 28, at 6:15 p.m. in the HCC Alumni Amphitheater. The United States Navy Sea Chanters, the Navy’s official chorus, will present a free concert as part of their 15th Annual Alumni Red, White and Blue Concert Series. Originally a 16-member all-male chorus, the Sea Chanters initially sang traditional music, including sea shanties, madrigals and motets. The Sea Chanters now include women in their group and perform a variety of music ranging from traditional choral music, including sea chanteys and patriotic fare, to opera, Broadway, and contemporary music. They are frequently found at the center of our most important national events, including Inauguration Day in 2009. They have played a vital role in comforting the nation in times of mourning, including appearances at memorials for the astronauts of the Space Shuttle Columbia and the presidential wreath laying ceremony at the United Airlines Flight 93 crash site in Shanksville, Pa. Bring your family to this exceptional event that is sure to have music that suits every taste.
