The concert by the U.S. Navy Band Sea Chanters, the Navy’s official chorus, is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Feb. 27 at the Bankhead Theater. The ensemble performs music ranging from traditional choral music, including sea chanteys and patriotic fare, to opera, Broadway and contemporary music.

The Sea Chanters chorus, at home in Washington, D.C., is frequently at the center of high-profile national events. It was formed in 1956 to perpetuate the songs of the sea and now comforts the nation in times of mourning, at memorials, dedications and days of remembrance. Members have appeared in national Memorial Day concerts at the U.S. Capitol.

Countrywide tours by the U.S. Navy Band are one of the signature outreach programs of the Navy. All of the band’s primary performing units go on concert tours each year, allowing the band to reach out to audiences in areas of the country that cannot see the ensembles on a regular basis.

The concerts are family-friendly events, meant to be entertaining to veterans, families, individuals and those interested in joining the Navy. All Navy Band performances are free and open to the public.

The Livermore performance is currently sold out. To request tickets for the wait list, go to lvpac.org/event/us-navy-sea-chanters-concert.
