The RiverPark Summer Series of shows is set to begin soon in Geneva.
The eighth annual Summer Series will be held at 6 p.m. Sundays, July 10, 17 and 24 at RiverPark, at North River Lane and Peyton Street just north of State Street in Geneva. The programs, which will take place at the park's stone amphitheater, are sponsored by the city of Geneva's Cultural Arts Commission.
The series begins July 10 with Northside Brass led by Geneva High School graduate and resident Ryan Hobbs. The ensemble offers a wide range of music including classical jazz, Dixieland and New Orleans-style brass band, organizers said.
On July 17, The Need To Be Seen Radio Troupe takes the audience back when radio drama and comedy ruled the airwaves.
Finally, patrons can enjoy a night of big band music as the Geneva Jazz Ensemble concludes the Summer Series July 24. The group is headlined by Geneva resident Nancy Werve.
All performances are free of charge, but donations to the Cultural Arts Commission are welcomed. In case of inclement weather, performances will be moved inside to the Fellowship Hall of the United Methodist Church of Geneva, 211 Hamilton St., organizers said.
