Mystic Seaport Museum Songs of the Sea

Music as a Lens for Interdisciplinary Exploration

Presented by the American Orff-Schulwerk Association Connecticut Chapter and led by Mystic Seaport Museum Chantey Musicians/Seaport Artists, this hands on workshop will explore music of the sea, highlighting history, culture, and language within the context of music. Participants will learn from world renowned experts as they examine songs on the grounds of the Mystic Seaport Museum itself. They will then visit sites and ships to apply the songs in authentic settings. This interdisciplinary workshop weaves together the National Arts Standards of Creating, Performing, Responding, and Connecting while intersecting the CT State Social Studies Framework. Please join us for this music based workshop for both Music Educators AND Classroom Teachers .
