Chorale at Blue Cavern

The Aquarium of the Pacific will host the Long Beach Chorale for a summer evening concert on Sunday, June 4, 2017. The chorale will perform nautical and seafaring-themed music from the stage in a program titled “Pirates and Pilgrims and Sailors—Oh, My!”


Led by guest conductor Matthew Martinez, the Long Beach Chorale will perform in the Aquarium’s Great Hall in front of the three-story Honda Blue Cavern exhibit. The musical selections highlighting journeys, voyages, and discovery are drawn from the world of theater, from the operas of Mozart to Gilbert and Sullivan and Dame Ethel Smyth’s The Wreckers.


The concert is part of the Aquarium’s ongoing efforts to feature the visual and performing arts as a way for the public to connect with the ocean. In addition to performing at the Aquarium’s grand opening celebration in 1998, the Long Beach Chorale has held two summer concerts at the Aquarium in 2014 and 2016.
