The South Street Seaport Museum and Gaia Music Collective have announced the first event of Blue Mind Fest: a one-day choir event set to take place tomorrow. This will be the first of a series of performances throughout the year that focus on the impact that water has on our lives. These programs that will run throughout the year promise to focus on education, well-being, and sustainability.

The Gaia Music Collective, based in Brooklyn, is dedicated to creating accessible spaces for music making. In accordance with the theme, singers of all levels are invited to sing the song “Water” by singer songwriter Tyla. In light of Gaia’s dedication to inclusivity, singers of all levels are welcome.

This first event of Blue Mind Fest will begin with a rehearsal in the hull of the 1885 ship Wavertree. As the experience progresses, the choir will move to the main deck to perform. The South Street Seaport Museum features collections of art, galleries, and artifacts preserving New York’s history as a port city. The Seaport Museum offers excellent opportunities to learn about New York’s history as a port city. PIX11 News explored the South Seaport Museum and discussed its mission with the museum president.

Proceeds from Blue Mind Fest will be split between the Gaia Music Collective and the South Street Seaport. Tickets start at $1, but a donation of $11-$30 is suggested. This event will be held on Saturday, May 18, from 3-6 PM. Advanced registration is required, and a beverage is included with the ticket.
