Sequim City Band goes ‘Disney’ for June 9 concert

Time to break out those favorite Disney costumes.

The Sequim City Band presents “A Disney Spectacular,” an afternoon of live music highlighting favorites from the company’s classic movies, starting at 3 p.m. on Sunday, June 9, at the The James Center for the Performing Arts, 350 N. Blake Ave., just north of Carrie Blake Community Park.

All children are encouraged to wear a costume of any character — a pirate, a princess, a prince, a candlestick, a cowboy, an African animal, a sorcerer or others — from a Disney movie. The children will be invited to dance and march on the paved section in front of the stage as the band plays some of their favorite music.

Included will be music from classic Disney films such as “The Jungle Book,” the original “Mary Poppins,” “The Little Mermaid,” “Beauty and the Beast” and “Aladdin,” plus “The Lion King, “Pirates of the Caribbean,” “Fantasia,” “Sleeping Beauty” and “Frozen.”

The concert is free and under the direction of Tyler Benedict. Attendees are encouraged to bring light refreshments and a lawn chair or blanket to sit on the lawn.

Free on-site parking is available; enter the park from North Blake Avenue at East Fir Street.

Upcoming concerts for the band’s “Concerts at the James” series include Thursday, July 4 (“Patriotic 4th), Sunday, Aug. 18 (“Movies, Musicals and Marches”) and Sunday, Sept. 15 (“American Melodies”). All shows start at 3 p.m.
