Music in the key of SEA

Friday, June 10, 2016 the Long Beach Chorale presents “Music in the Key of Sea.” Featuring fifty voices accompanied by projected video with the Aquarium’s Honda Blue Cavern exhibit as the backdrop.

The chorale will perform music that celebrates penguins, mermaids, and octopuses as well as ocean-themed folk songs from Japan, Cuba, Italy, and the United States. Their performance will include movements from “Symphony of the Jellies,” a piece the Aquarium commissioned in 2015 that has been newly arranged for voices.  This symphony was developed based on an algorithm that tracks the movements of sea jellies and translates them into sounds.

Doors will open at 7:00 p.m., giving the audience a chance to explore the Aquarium’s exhibits before the concert begins at 7:30 p.m. This event is $30 per adult, $18 for students with ID and children ages 3 to 11. $25 for Aquarium members, $15 for member students and children. Includes Aquarium admission.  Purchase tickets here.

About K.P. Rennie

I generally only write reviews about books that I am inspired to read more than once, so my book reviews aren't about new releases that I liked, they are about tried and true books that I LOVE. I favor quirky stories, inspirational memoirs, and real life drama. There are many movies and books that I have enjoyed more than once. If you liked any of these, we probably have similar taste- Books: Peter Pan, Choke, A Life Without Consequences, Fight Club, The Adderall Diaries, Lets Pretend This Never Happened, The Glass Castle, Another Bullshit Night in Suck City, Wild, The Tribes of Palos Verdes, Just Kids, Movies: Little Miss Sunshine, Seven Psychopaths, Ghost World, Pulp Fiction, Hook, Big Fish, Reservoir Dogs, Moonrise Kingdom, Being John Malcovich, I am President of The Fun Zone; The Center for the Study of Funism.
