A nice variety of free outdoor performances are scheduled this summer at the beautiful RiverPark, a terraced amphitheater with native plants and art along the Fox River in downtown Geneva. Located at 151 N. River Lane, RiverPark is on the west side of the Fox River just north of State Street (Route 38).

The RiverPark Summer Concert Series of the Geneva Cultural Arts Commission begins at 6 p.m. Sunday, July 8 with a free performance by Lee Murdock. Noted as a fluent instrumentalist on six and 12-string guitars, Murdock’s musical influences span 15 generations from the 17th century Irish harp music to Scott Joplin guitar rags. He also embraces the blues, freshwater shanties, original songs and ballads. Catch all four of the Geneva Cultural Arts Commission concerts on Sunday evenings in July.
