The award-winning Northwinds Homeschool Band presents its final concert of the 2013-2014 season at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 12, at Independent Bible Church, 116 E. Ahlvers Road, Port Angeles.

The band recently returned from a Southern California tour where it was awarded two Gold Level Awards and an award for best representing its community at the Heritage Music Festival. The band also performed at Disneyland and California Adventure Park.

The band will be playing selections from the animated feature blockbusters “The Incredibles,” “Aladdin,” “Frozen” and “How to Train Your Dragon,” as well as music from Broadway/Movie sensations “Les Miserables” and “Fiddler on the Roof.” The concert is open to the public. Admission is free, though donations will be accepted.

The band also is selling hanging flower baskets and baskets will be offered at a discount at the concert. The Northwinds Homeschool Band, a nonprofit group, is led by director Dan Tutton and is committed to providing a foundational music opportunity for homeschool children.

The band is now in its 14th year and serves about 60 children between the ages of 8-18.
