Join thousands who gather each year for one of the world’s premier sea music events. Hear an amazing array of performers from across the world perform maritime music ranging from the golden age of sail to the best of contemporary compositions. The weekend’s festivities include concerts, special performances for children, instructional workshops, and a unique opportunity to witness sea music at work aboard historic vessels.
Daytime concerts and workshops are open to all Museum visitors. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evening concerts require separate tickets.
As part of the Sea Music Festival, Mystic Seaport will also host the Music of the Sea Symposium. The Music of the Sea Symposium explores the interaction between sea, music, and song. As an integral part of the annual Sea Music Festival, this two-day symposium, co-sponsored by Mystic Seaport, Williams College, the Williams-Mystic Program, and the University of Connecticut at Avery Point, explores subjects from history and folklore, to literature and ethnomusicology, along with many other related topics. The Sea Music Festival All-Access Pass gives entry to Mystic Seaport, the Symposium, and all other Sea Music Festival events Thursday night through Sunday. The Music of the Sea Symposium is sponsored by Mystic Seaport, Williams College, the Williams-Mystic Program, and the University of Connecticut at Avery Point.
