Michael Phelps. Lady Gaga. WrestleMania. LeBron James.

What do they have in common?

All are younger than the Redmond Community Concert Association, a nonprofit organization that began in 1984 with a mission of bringing quality live entertainment to Redmond at an affordable price.

Twenty-nine years later, the RCCA will kick off its season Sunday with two performances by Diane Lines, a vocalist and pianist who, along with her band, will present “JUMP!” — a “uniquely feminine approach to the era of jump blues; the era that combined elements of swing, blues & boogie-woogie,” according to her website.

RCCA offers tickets by season subscription for $60, which gets you into all five performances, or $125 for a family with students.

Here’s the rest of the RCCA’s 2013-14 season:

Nov. 17 — Mark Masri (multilingual tenor vocalist)

Feb. 9 — Trio Voronezh (string ensemble with Russian folk instruments)

March 16 — Two On Tap (song, dance and comedy)

April 13 — Vivace (classically trained vocalists perform “popera”)
