The Sequim Community Orchestra performs its final concert of the season at 7 p.m. Friday, June 20, in Trinity United Methodist Church, 100 Blake Ave.

Its theme is “American Salute,” with much of the music inspired by American themes or American composers. Some of the music included in the program is Gerswhin’s “American in Paris,” Gould’s “American Salute,” Dvorak’s “New World Symphony” and more. Entry is free.

The orchestra held its first concert in February and begins rehearsals for people of all ages and skills each September.

This year, the orchestra started a beginning strings class free to students who finished the year with a concert on May 29 in Greywolf Elementary. The Sequim School District provided the classroom space and transportation for students from Helen Haller to Greywolf for the after-school class and the orchestra provided instruction from Morgan-Ellis, orchestra conductor.

A grant from the Floyd and Delores Jones Foundation and the Norcliffe Foundation, and donations from the community helped offset costs for students.
