The Ballard Sedentary Sousa Band performs at 2 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 23, at Peace Arch State Park, 19 A St., Blaine.

The Seattle non-marching march band plays the greatest hits of marching band music by John Philip Sousa, Henry Fillmore and others. The band is directed by raconteur Liz Dreisbach, who spins fun yarns and wears an array of vintage band uniforms.

Shows also include The Ballard Sedentary Sousa Band Drill Team, assisted by Edith Farrar, who calls herself the “World’s Finest Sedentary Majorette” and performs thrilling feats of seated baton twirling.

Watch the band at sedentarysousa.com.

The free show is the last in this year’s annual Peace Arch International Concert Series, hosted by the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission’s Folk and Traditional Arts in the Parks Program.
