WEEKEND — Port Townsend Summer Band wraps season

“The Duke of Marlborough” fanfare by Percy Grainger, John Philip Sousa’s “The Occidental” march, “Blue Tango” by Leroy Anderson and other rousing music will meet concertgoers Saturday afternoon at Fort Flagler State Park in Nordland and Sunday at Chetzemoka Park in Port Townsend.

In its last two public performances of the season, the Port Townsend Summer Band will strike up at 3 p.m. in Fort Flagler’s outdoor space known as Battery Bankhead to play the above tunes plus the “Royal Pageant Overture” by George D. Barnard, Sousa’s Revival march and “A Night in Granada” by Konradin Kreutzer.

After an intermission, the band will offer the “Trafalgar March” by Wilhelm Zehle, Hawley Ades’ “A Cohan Salute,” Paul Murtha’s arrangement of “Glenn Miller in Concert” and “A Mighty Fortress is Our God.”

For the finale, the ensemble will play Sousa’s “Stars and Stripes Forever.”

Admission to the performance is $5, and a state park Discovery Pass is not required to attend the Fort Flagler concert.
