Music of the Sea Class

April 1

Sharpen your musical skills in our “Music of the Sea: Ballads, Chanteys, and Songs of the Sailor” class. Explore the rich connections between music and the sea. Led by the Museum’s experienced chantey men, this class will follow the functions of sea music in the work and lives of 19th-century sailors and will include both musical instruction and hands-on work experience aboard the Museum’s vessels. The class will culminate in a performance at the Museum’s Greenmanville Church. Class registration includes a set of “Bones” and a Songs of the Sailor booklet and CD. All skill levels are welcome. For ages 16 and older.
