Kirkland Performance Center (KPC) announced their 2017-2018 season along with flexible and affordable ticket packages. Season ticket packages are on sale now and individual tickets to all presented shows will go on sale on Aug. 15. Three show packages start at $119.

KPC’s Opening Weekend includes three nights of music this October. These shows include folk legend Loudon Wainwright III, the founder of the Byrds, Roger McGuinn, and Take Me to the River: LIVE! featuring William Bell, Bobby Rush and Charlie Musselwhite.

Of special note is Grammy Award winner Kenny G performing his holiday tour on Thursday, Nov. 30. This show is a benefit performance for KPC. With him, Kenny G brings a night filled with festive spirit and contemporary classics to Kirkland. Nestled in between are many exciting shows including returning favorites The Brothers Four and New West Guitar Group featuring Sara Gazarek, and Survivorman – Les Stroud Live and Acoustic, a musical/story telling and video concert experience like no other.

KPC is also continuing its Local Favorites series, which highlights local artists/groups and helps them grow in the Eastside community. Local Favorites is in its third year, and was designed to shine a spotlight on some of KPC’s frequent local collaborators. Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra (SRJO), Studio East and StoryBook Theater, and Uncle Bonsai are just a few of the artists who will be presented on the KPC stage as Local Favorites. These artists and groups will also provide many educational opportunities throughout the 2017-18 Season.

Tickets are available online, over the phone at (425) 893-9900, or at the KPC Box Office from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday until curtain on show days.
