2019 ‘Concert at The James’ Series: ‘Movies, Musicals, and Marches’

Who: Sequim City Band

When: 3 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 18

Where: The James Center for the Performing Arts, 350 N. Blake Ave.

Cost: Free

Get ready for a movie- and musical-inspired afternoon of musical treats from Sequim musicians and others from across the Olympic Peninsula.

Under the direction of Tyler Benedict, the Sequim City Band presents “Movies, Musicals & Marches,” a free concert set for 3 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 18, at The James Center for the Performing Arts, 350 N. Blake Ave.

Part of the 2019 “Concert at the James” series, this event sees the band perform familiar pieces from well-known musicals and movies. Rodgers, along with lyricist Oscar Hammerstein II, was known for musicals with memorable songs and compelling stories with social commentary. Hear “Some Enchanted Evening” or “I’m Gonna Wash that Man Right Outa My Hair” from “South Pacific” or, in scenes set on the other side of the world, enjoy Loewe’s (and lyricist Alan Jay Lerner’s) “My Fair Lady” performances, such as “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly” and “I Could Have Danced All Night.” The band also offers Webber’s “Don’t’ Cry for Me Argentina” from “Evita” and “Memory” from “Cats.”

Guest announcer/vocalist Vicki Helwick will perform “Moon River” composed by Henry Mancini with lyrics by Johnny Mercer, from the movie “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” Helwick will also reprise the lament “I Dreamed a Dream” from “Les Miserables.”

Movie marches will also be part of the concert mix, including “The River Kwai March” from “The Bridge on the River Kwai” and “Colonel Hathi’s March (The Elephant Song)” from “The Jungle Book.”

The concert and on-site parking are free to the public. To reach the James Center, enter the north section of Carrie Blake Community Park from North Blake Avenue at the East Fir Street intersection. Follow signs to parking and the outdoor stage and then settle in on the lawn to enjoy the concert.

The final concert of the “Concert at the James” series is Sunday, Sept. 15, when the band presents “American Melodies.”
