Sisters and spouses headline Music Live with Lunch

SEQUIM — The Vivona sisters, Dr. Grace Vivona Yelland and Dr. Christine Vivona, will return to play Music Live with Lunch on Tuesday, and their husbands will be joining them on stage.

All four, including professional musician Rob Boone (Christine’s husband) and Dr. Joel Yelland (Grace’s husband), perform at noon in St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 525 N. Fifth Ave., for the monthly concert and luncheon series.

Tickets are $12 and are available at the door or from the church office between 9 a.m. and noon Mondays through Thursdays.

The group will perform popular songs such as “Danny Boy,” “Sweet Georgia Brown” and “Puttin’ on the Ritz.”

Grace, a bass flutist, and Christine, a harpist, will perform during the luncheon in the parish hall, too.

Christine Vivona is an award-winning harpist from the Tuscon, Ariz., area, where she plays for the Tuscon Symphony and is principal harpist for True Concord Voices & Orchestra, formerly the Tuscon Chamber Artists.

She holds a master’s degree in music from Julliard School and a doctorate in harp performance from the University of Arizona where she currently teaches.

She frequently records and performs with some of her notable partnerships, including Ray Charles and The Moody Blues.

Her husband, Boone, has been a professional musician since age 16. He teaches jazz piano and trombone at Pima Community College in Tuscon. For the show, he’ll play trombone and piano, too.

Grace Vivona Yelland, a pediatrician, began playing the flute at age 7. After moving to Sequim, she’s been performing with the Sequim City Band since 2010 and Sequim Community Orchestra since 2016.

Joel Yelland, a baritone and family medicine doctor, plays percussion in several local groups and sings with the Peninsula Singers. For this show, he’ll sing.

Music Live with Lunch began nearly 30 years ago at St. Luke’s as a musical outreach to the community. Concerts begin at noon and lunch at 12:30 p.m.
