Sumter is one of 36 cities in six states that will host an upcoming performance by the U.S. Navy Band during its 2015 spring tour.
One of the Navy’s signature outreach program, the U.S. Navy Band Sea Chanters’ performance will be held 7 p.m. Feb. 21 at the Patriot Hall Performing Arts Center Concert Hall, 135 Haynsworth St. in Sumter.
The U.S. Navy Band 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.
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, vice president, and numerous congressional, military and foreign dignitaries.
All Navy Band performances are free and open to the public.
