"One of the favorite parts of my job is discovering new musical talent, and the fall series allows us to introduce some of my favorite new finds to the community," Wheeler Executive Director Gena Buhler said in the announcement. "Our entire Wheeler team is excited about the return of this series. We started it last year with high hopes that the concerts on this series would attract locals, and it did."
