The concert will be at the James Center for the Performing Arts, 563 N. Rhodefer Road in the Water Reuse Demonstration Site north of Carrie Blake Park.
This month, the centennial theme is the 1980s.
Under the direction of band leader Tyler Benedict, the band will give the audience a taste of pop, symphonic concert band music, musical theater and movie music, as well as the standard rousing march.
Sample selections include “Michael Jackson Through the Years,” a tribute to the King of Pop.
A second medley, “Soaring with John Williams,” showcases the movie composer’s popular themes from “Superman,” “The Empire of the Sun” and “Star Wars.”
A tribute to the 1986 musical “The Phantom of the Opera,” by Andrew Lloyd Webber, also is planned.
Announcing the concert this month is Pat Owens, an actor, director and community theater jack-of-all-trades.
Owens has been active with Readers Theater Plus, Olympic Theater Arts, Port Angeles Community Players and PALOA — Port Angeles Light Opera Association.
The Sequim City Band is composed of more than 60 volunteers from Clallam and Jefferson counties.
The musicians rehearse every Monday evening at the Swisher Rehearsal Hall at the James Center for the Performing Arts.
