Sunday Afternoon Live held a sneak preview at the Raymond Theatre the evening of Friday, Jan. 20, of the performers slated for the upcoming 2017-18 season.
The upcoming performance season will mark SAL's fifteenth year of bringing a wide variety of acts from around the region, nation, and world to perform for local audiences.
"Our small group of thoughtful, committed citizens may not have changed the world, but we made a change in our corner of the world," said SAL Board President Virginia Carlson, addressing those gathered.
Carlson went on to express gratitude to the many who have been involved with the nonprofit group over the years in turning it into a long-running success.
Among the performers for next season that were announced on Friday and for whom SAL is seeking sponsorship are the following:
The Quebe Sisters, a fiddle-centered Western swing group from Dallas
World-class illusionist Vitaly Beckham from Vancouver, BC
On the Rocks, an all-male a cappella group from the University of Oregon
Socks in the Frying Pan, a trio from County Clare, Ireland, who play traditional Irish music
Pianist Steven Vanhauwaert
Montreal Guitar Trio (MG3)
Seattle jazz vocalist Gail Pettis, who will cap the season with a performance on Mother's Day 2018.
Several scheduled performances still remain for the current 2016-17 season. More information can be found at sundayafternoonlive.org.
