Sequim City Band plans holiday season

SEQUIM — After a recent concert that featured Five Star Brass, a brass quintet of the Navy Band Northwest, the Sequim City Band is taking a Thanksgiving break from rehearsals.

Weekly rehearsals will resume Wednesday.

The most recent public performance was the Sequim City Band playing traditional Christmas music Saturday afternoon to greet Santa Claus as he arrived in downtown Sequim as a kickoff of the Christmas season.

Saxologists, a city band saxophone quartet, will play at the Olympic Theatre Arts’ OFF Stage for the First Friday Art Walk in December. Look for upcoming announcements by the OTA or view its website at

In addition to the Saxologists, the Sequim City Band will sponsor the Olympic Winds clarinet ensemble.

Both groups are available for holiday performances.
