SCRANTON — The United States Navy Band Sea Chanters will perform at 7 p.m. at the Theater at Lackawanna College. Tickets are free, and seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

As the official chorus of the United States Navy, and one of five performing units of the United States Navy Band, the Sea Chanters promote the Navy’s proud heritage of the sea. The repertoire of this 20-voice chorus, accompanied by piano, bass and drums, encompasses all types of choral music, including sea chanteys, patriotic selections, folk songs, sacred hymns, and the diverse sounds of opera and Broadway.

These singing ambassadors have appeared throughout the United States on concert tours, and perform frequently at the White House, the Vice President’s house, and for dignitaries at Washington embassies.

The performance is co-sponsored by the Armed Forces Committee of NEPA and Lackawanna College. The College and Armed Forces Committee previously welcomed the Navy Band Northeast’s Pops Ensemble.

Tickets, which are limited to four per person, are available at the front desk inside Lackawanna College’s main building, 501 Vine St. from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Those interested in attending may also send a self-addressed stamped envelope to Lackawanna College, ATTN: Navy Band Northeast Tickets, 501 Vine St., Scranton, PA, 18509.
