Directed by Dr. Carolyn Clark, adults of all ages sing popular standards, showtunes, traditional sea chanteys, and more. Free and open to anyone who would like to sing. The chorus does perform at local events, but performing is optional as the goal of the program is to allow anyone to sing regardless of vocal ability.
Sea Shantey Sessions
Every third Sunday afternoon of the month, the museum opens its doors to musicians and music lovers of all ages for a monthy sea shantey sing-a-long.
Join us on to knit hats, scarves, vests, and more for needy mariners and local families. Every year our Closeknitters donate hundreds (if not thousands!) of garments to Seamens Church Institute and to local charities around New York City. Experienced and novice knitters are welcome. We provide materials, refreshments and good company.
