Sequim High School said goodbye to 32 seniors who played their final concert at the school’s Performing Arts Building on June 8.

Some of the evening’s musical selections included a Disney medley and “Pirates of the Caribbean” by the concert band, a John Williams tribute (“themes from “Jaws” and “Star Wars,” among others) by the wind ensemble, a version of Peanuts’ “Linus and Lucy” by the percussion group and the SHS jazz band’s version of “Caravan” — a 1930s piece made famous by Duke Ellington, rearranged by Chicago and re-rearranged by Mike Tomaro. The evening also saw a performance by the Sequim High flag team.
