Sequim City Band hosts Kingston’s The Hometown Band for outdoor concert Sunday

Jas Linford will direct the Hometown Band which will open the program at the James Center for the Performing Arts.

SEQUIM — The Sequim City Band will host its next outdoor concert at 3 p.m. Sunday.

At the James Center for the Performing Arts at Carrie Blake Park, the band will present a free joint concert with Kitsap County’s Hometown Band.

Founded in 1982 by Ed Swanzey for the Kingston Fourth of July parade, the Hometown Band is a community band serving Kitsap County and the surrounding areas of Western Washington.

Under the direction of tuba player Jas Linford, the Hometown Band opens the program.

Tyler Benedict will conduct the Sequim City Band, a group of more than 60 volunteer musicians, in the second half.

As always, the band presents a variety of concert band repertoire with favorites new and old.

The concert features the “William Tell Overture” by Rossini and George Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue,” while “An American in Paris” and “Cuban Overture” are combined into “The Symphonic Gershwin” medley.

It also features “Handel in the Strand,” a lively and merry clog dance by Percy Grainger, and “Them Basses,” a march by G.H. Huffine. The newly acquired set of chimes will peal out in “The Chimes of Liberty” march by E.F. Goldman.

The two bands will perform several pieces together, including a medley of songs from Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean,” the “Thunder and Blazes March” by Fucik-Laurendeau and Sousa’s “Manhattan Beach” march.

With new parking construction around the James Center, all vehicles need to enter the park from Blake Avenue and Fir Street at the entrance to the Water Reuse Area.

There is still plenty of parking near the band shell.
