Summer Lawn Series
The New Bedford Harbor Sea Chantey Chorus, under the direction of Tom Goux, is made up of some of Schooner Ernestina’s most vocal volunteers, one of the most harmonious crews ever to come ashore. The Chorus comprised of 35 singers and instrumentalists from across the region, presents the chanteys or work songs from the Yankee whaler and sailor, along with ballads and ditties of global mariners and fisherfolk. This year’s program pays tribute to New England’s musical and poetic ties to Old England with tunes first heard in the 17th and 18th centuries. Celebrating its twentieth year, the chorus supports the rebuilding of the Schooner Ernestina-Morrissey by telling her story through song.
