Music and Dance

Weekly outdoor summer concerts fill the soft air with music along the scenic Fox River at both River Park and Island Park, sponsored by the GCAC and the Geneva Park District.  The Park District also presents concerts in a number of locations, including Peck Farm Park, Mill Creek Park, and Sunset Park.  The Geneva Commons offers periodic concerts as its commitment to the Arts in Geneva. At the end of the summer during Labor Day Weekend the Folk Fair, run by the Fox Valley Folklore Society, is held on island Park.  

As part of Shakespeare in the Park, a local dance studio presents ballet interludes that precede the play, and during the Christmas season mounts the Nutcracker Ballet. The famed Orion Ensemble plays concerts annually in Geneva, and each Christmas season four local churches present the popular Steeple Walk. Audiences amble between the churches, at each one enjoying seasonal music sung by choirs, played by a variety of ensembles, performed on harp and flute, organ and guitar. Every year is different, a pleasant and welcome surprise for those filling the pews.
