Geneva Steeple Walk concerts to ring out again

Two audience groups attend concerts at 4 churches

Following a one-year hiatus because of the pandemic, the Geneva Steeple Walk returns to usher in the holidays, greeting patrons with a variety of seasonal music concerts at four Geneva churches, officials announced in a news release.

Presented by the Geneva Cultural Arts Commission, the Steeple Walk takes place from 2 to 4:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 5, with two audience groups attending 20-minute concerts played simultaneously at the United Methodist Church of Geneva, 211 Hamilton St., and at Geneva Lutheran Church, 301 S. Third St.

Following the performances, the groups will switch venues to enjoy the other concert.

Patrons then walk to the final performances – and similar rotation format – at both the Unitarian Universalist Society of Geneva, 102 S. Second St., and First Church of Christ, Scientist, 111 S. Second St.

Steeple Walk guides will escort the groups to the next church, all within a short walk, and share information about the architecture of each site.

Performances:

• Tessera Winds, a saxophone and brass quartet at the United Methodist Church

• Potts and Pans Steel Ensemble at Geneva Lutheran Church

• John Ivan on the Spanish guitar at the Unitarian Universalist church

• Batavia High School string quartet at First Church of Christ, Scientist

Tickets cost $15 per person and are available on the city’s website at www.geneva.il.us; Geneva City Hall, 22 S. First St.; and at the Geneva Chamber of Commerce, 8 S. Third St.

Attendance by children under age 6 is not recommended.
