Audi and Peter Souza entertained friends, volunteers, and members with an evening of song and a celebration of the Chantey art form, December 17th, 2020 at 6 PM. A short presentation of chantey history was followed by a live performance. Hosted by Board member Bill Barton, there was a lot of engaging conversation amidst a celebratory atmosphere. It was a lovely ride through sea history and a festive musical event during the holiday season!
