NORWALK, Conn. – America's Navy is coming to Norwalk and Ridgefield, two of 20 cities in eight states to host a performance by the U.S. Navy Band Sea Chanters, on Wednesday at 7 p.m. at Norwalk Concert Hall and Thursday at 7:30 p.m. at East Ridge Middle School in Ridgefield.
The U.S. Navy Band Sea Chanters is the official chorus of America’s Navy. The ensemble performs a variety of music ranging from traditional choral music, including sea chanteys and patriotic fare, to opera, Broadway and contemporary music. The Sea Chanters chorus is frequently found at the center of high-profile national events. At home in Washington, the group performs for the president and vice president, and numerous congressional, military and foreign dignitaries.
All of the band’s primary performing units embark each year on concert tours throughout specified regions of the country, allowing the band to reach out to audiences in areas of the country that do not have opportunities to see the Navy's premier musical 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 Norwalk Concert Hall is at 125 East Ave., Norwalk.
East Ridge Middle School is at 10 E. Ridge Road, Ridgefield.
