Music in the Key of Sea
The Long Beach Chorale returns to the Aquarium for their summer concert, Music in the Key of Sea. Featuring fifty voices and accompanied by projected video, the Chorale will perform a program of ocean and marine life-themed music with the Aquarium’s Honda Blue Cavern exhibit as the backdrop. The chorale’s assistant director and pianist, Beth Syverson, will conduct the program.
The program for this concert will include a performance of movements from Symphony of the Jellies, a piece the Aquarium commissioned in 2015 that has been newly arranged for voices. The program will also include OM for Chorus and Whale by Mark Barville, the Chorale’s founding director. This piece was first performed by the Chorale at the Aquarium on its opening day on June 20, 1998. Other music on the program will celebrate penguins, mermaids, and octopuses. The Chorale will also perform ocean-themed folk songs from Japan, Cuba, Italy, and the United States.
Doors will open at 7:00 p.m., giving the audience a chance to explore the Aquarium’s exhibits before the concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Refreshments will be available for purchase.
COST $30 per adult, $18 for students with ID and children ages 3 to 11. $25 for Aquarium members, $15 for member students and children. Includes Aquarium admission.
