SS Chanteens Concert May 5 at New Haven Public Library

The whole family is invited to enjoy a program of traditional sea chanties sung by the fabulous SS Chanteens, a group of singers from The Sound School in New Haven, on Thursday, May 5, at 6 pm, at New Haven Public Library, 133 Elm St.

About the SS Chanteens:
A sailing trip in Maine several years ago introduced students from The Sound School Regional Aquaculture Center in New Haven to sea music, and inspired a new Maritime Culture class. While some students helped build the schooner Amistad at Mystic Seaport, another group explored the songs of life at sea while building Margru, the ship's boat, in their shop class. Song filled the air, and in 2002 the S.S. Chanteens came together as a high-energy musical group led by Paula Daddario and Kristi Otterbach. 

There is no charge for this family-friendly performance of sea chanties, and free parking is available. Please reserve your seat at or call the library at 203-946-8835.
