AMARILLO -- The United States Navy Band Sea Chanters performance is tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the Amarillo Civic Center, 401 South Buchanan, Amarillo, Texas. 

The Navy Band Sea Chanters is the United States Navys official chorus. The ensemble performs a variety of music ranging from traditional choral music, including sea chanteys and patriotic fare, to opera, Broadway, and contemporary music.

"America's Navy has only recently adopted the motto, 'Being There Matters,' but it's been a part of what we do for many years - through music - and therefore Navy bands are integral to our national security," said Capt. Brian O. Walden, the Navy Bands commanding officer. "Today, Navy bands are still performing around the world, acting as agents of public diplomacy for the American government, improving relations with our allies and winning the hearts and minds with the universal language of music."

All Navy Band performances are free and open to the public.  For ticket information about this concert please check the bands website.
