New Bedford Harbor Sea Chantey Chorus  |  New Bedford  |  2003 

The New Bedford Harbor Sea Chantey Chorus presented a program of historical maritime songs throughout New Bedford and Southern New England. This project supported an all-volunteer chorus, half of whom lived or worked in New Bedford. It also highlighted an important aspect of New Bedford's history, and the experience of immigrant communities from the Azores and Cape Verde.
