The U.S. Navy Band Sea Chanters will perform on Friday, May 5 at 7 p.m. at North Platte High School.The Sea Chanters are 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.
North Platte is one of 18 cities in eight states during the band's 2017 tour. All Navy Band performances are free and open to the public.
The Sea Chanters chorus frequently performs at high-profile national events. At home in Washington, the group performs for the president, vice president and congressional, military and foreign dignitaries.
One of the U.S. Navy Band’s primary responsibilities involves touring the country. All of the band’s primary performing units embark each year on concert tours throughout regions of the country, allowing the band to reach 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, meant to be entertaining to veterans, families, individuals and those interested in joining the Navy.
