Altus, Oklahoma has become one of the 18 cities in six states to host the United States Navy Band Sea Chanters chorus during their 2014 national tour.One of the U.S. Navy Band’s main responsibilities involves touring the country. All of the band’s primary performing units embark each year on concert tours throughout specified regions of the country, allowing the band to reach out to audiences in areas of the country that do not have opportunities to see the Navy’s premier musical ensembles on a regular basis. The concerts are family-friendly events, meant to be entertaining to veterans, families, individuals and those interested in joining the 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.

“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 Band’s 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.”

The Sea Chanters’ 2014 tour includes 18 performances in Arkansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.

All Navy Band performances are free and open to the public. However, most do require tickets and advance preparation is often encouraged.

The United States Navy Band Sea Chanters’ performance is scheduled for March 13, 2014, 7:00 p.m., at the Herschal H. Crow Fine Arts Auditorium, Western Oklahoma State College, 2801 N. Main St., Altus, OK.

For ticket information about this concert please check the band’s website.
