The Wheeler Opera House once again looks to bring new musicians to a local audience with its fall "On The Rise" series.
Alex Guthrie kicks off the series Thursday night. He brought his blend of soul, folk and rock to the Wheeler for the first time earlier this year.
Other acts slated for the series include country band Farewell Angelina, folk group Rainbow Girls and beat-boxer LYNX.
Wheeler Opera House executive director Gena Buhler says that the series is aimed at an audience made up of locals looking to discover up-and-coming artists.
"On The Rise" shows do run in the fall, but Buhler says the Wheeler is busy year-round, and sees less and less of an offseason these days.
