SANFORD, Maine — Maine is going to get an opportunity to hear sea chanteys and other music from U.S. Navy sailors.

The United States Navy Band Sea Chanters is going to perform Thursday in Sanford.

The group is the official chorus of the Navy, performing traditional choral music, including sea chanteys, opera, Broadway numbers, and contemporary music.

At home in Washington, the group performs for the president, vice president, and numerous congressional, military and foreign dignitaries. Officials say the Maine visit at Sanford Veterans Memorial Gymnasium is part of a tour of 20 cities in eight states.
