Geneva’s Summer Concert Series brings family fun along the Fox River

Jun 08, 2017 11:14AM ● Published by Neighbors Magazines

Grab a lawn chair, blanket or even bring a picnic dinner to enjoy three free nights of entertainment along the Fox River during the RiverPark Summer Concert Series.

The ninth annual Summer Concert Series will be held at 6 p.m. Sundays, July 9, July 16 and July 23 at RiverPark, located at North River Lane and Peyton Street just north of State Street. The programs, which will take place at the park’s stone amphitheater, are sponsored by the City of Geneva’s Cultural Arts Commission.

The Victory Travelers open the series July 9. The quartet accompanied with electric guitar, trumpet, saxophone and drums perform gospel music with excitement and vocal power. Some of the songs are “deep and bluesy as if they are from the Deep South.” Introducing the Victory Travelers is Robert Marovic, founder of Journal of Gospel Music.

Back by popular demand is the Geneva Jazz Ensemble on July 16. Under the direction of Geneva High School graduate Christopher Werve, the 18-piece jazz band plays classic big band music.

On July 23, The Need To Be Seen Radio Troupe takes the audience back when radio drama and comedy ruled the airwaves. Entertaining crowds in the Fox Valley for the past seven years, the Troupe’s unique act makes people use their imagination to picture the action listening to various voices and sound effects.

All performances are free of charge, but donations to the Cultural Arts Commission are always welcome. In case of inclement weather, performances will be moved inside to the Fellowship Hall of the United Methodist Church of Geneva, 211 Hamilton St.
