Past Music at Sea Blog Posts
Brooks Aehron was born into a musical family in the mediaeval market town of Guildford, England, where his unusual talent for the piano quickly manifested itself into numerous awards and scholarships. When just ten years old he was selected for free tuition at London's famous Royal College of Music which later awarded him a prestigious Foundation Scholarship. On completion of his studies Brooks became a member of the college staff but eventually the demands of a flourishing performing career forced the exclusion of his teaching activities.
In England, Brooks Aehron has appeared at the major concert halls including the Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall and Wigmore Hall. Press reports have described him as an "astonishing pianist" with "deep musical insight" and "phenomenal technique". His amazing versatility has even taken him to that temple of show business, the legendary London Palladium, where, on a live telecast he caused a sensation by performing Leroy Anderson's "The Typewriter" - playing both piano and typewriter simultaneously!
He has guested on many television shows, and his enormously successful BBC radio programme "Brooks Aehron's Serenade" made full use of his extraordinary mastery of a wide range of musical styles from the great classics to contemporary rock. The show featured his playing and presentational skills and sixty piece orchestra, ran through two series with repeats. Each time topping the Audience Appreciation Index.
Brooks is the founder of "Music at Sea". These unique and highly personal concert cruises - currently in their 16th year - are now firmly established in the cruise calendar with our 56th and 57th "Music at Sea" planned for 2016 and organized, as always, by his close friends John and Rosemary Roberts, the owners of GalaxSea Cruises of San Diego.
Brooks Aehron regularly fulfils a heavy yearly work schedule of between 100 and 150 performance all over the world. When not on tour Brooks lives quietly in London preparing new programmes and enjoying life with his wife, the writer Ann Mann.
Brooks has his own website with more information about Brooks Aehron, even some video clips of a concert plus another video of 'The Typewriter. It is at www.brooksaehron.com
Mr. Aehron offers multiple "Music at Sea" Concert Cruises each year. At the end of 2015 we completed our 55th "Music at Sea" Concert Cruise. These very special cruises offer a unique opportunity for a limited number of people to enjoy his music with private concerts and many special events exclusively for guests of the Music at Sea Concert Cruises.
Other passengers on board the cruise ship will not know about these private functions and are not permitted to attend. Brooks will also not be performing for the entire ship. These special events and concerts are held exclusively for guests of the Music at Sea Concert Cruises. Each program is uniquely designed for lovers of great music and include:
Each cruise also includes:
To get our special group price that includes all the unique Music at Sea program events and be included in the limited number of special guests allowed on each Music at Sea Concert Cruise, one must purchase these cruises from GalaxSea Cruises of San Diego, the exclusive travel agency for these special cruises. Brooks will not be performing for the ship on these cruises.
John and Rosemary Roberts are dear friends of Brooks Aehron and are the owners of GalaxSea Cruises & Tours of San Diego. We have handled all of the Music at Sea Concert Cruises since 2001 and will be happy to add you to our growing list of very special guests. We look forward to meeting you on one of the Music at Sea Concert Cruises described below. Please note, every year we meet Brooks fans on board the ship that learn about the Music at Sea Concert Cruise schedule from our emails and mailings but they purchase the cruise through their local agency or the cruiseline. When they get on board they were sorely disappointed to learn they are not part of our group, are not notified of our functions and do not get to enjoy any of the Music at Sea events or concerts from Brooks as he no longer performs for the ship on Music at Sea concert cruises. Music at Sea Concert Cruises must be purchased through GalaxSea Cruises & Tours of San Diego. You are welcome to book all other cruises with your local agent and we will not market any other cruises to you. One last point is that our special price includes all these private functions/concerts, dining with Brooks, etc. while your local agent's price includes none of these incredibly special extras.
