Tickets On Sale For 12th Annual Geneva Steeple Walk

Steeple Walk

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

Presented by the Geneva Cultural Arts Commission, the Steeple Walk takes place from 2 to 4:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 5. Two audience groups will attend 20-minute concerts played simultaneously at the United Methodist Church of Geneva, 211 Hamilton St.; and Geneva Lutheran Church, 301 S. Third St. Following the performances, the groups will switch venues to enjoy the other concert.

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

Artists performing at each church include:

United Methodist Church

Tessera Winds is a popular saxophone and brass quartet that has played numerous concerts throughout the Chicago area.

Geneva Lutheran Church

The renowned Potts and Pans Steel Ensemble, the leading Midwest steel pan band, will bring a unique holiday sound to this year’s Steeple Walk.

Unitarian Universalist Society

John Ivan performs on the Spanish guitar featuring a wide variety of great melodies from jazz to classical, along with authentic flamenco, Latin, Brazil, and Mediterranean music.

First Church of Christ, Scientist

A string quartet from Batavia High School will be playing holiday favorites.  

Steeple Walk tickets cost $15 per person and are available for purchase on the City’s website; Geneva City Hall, 22 S. First St.; and the Geneva Chamber of Commerce, 8 S. Third St. Attendance by children under age 6 is not recommended.

Tickets are limited this year due to COVID-19 safety precautions. Patrons will be required to wear a face mask to comply with Illinois’ indoor mask mandate and church protocols.

The event concludes Geneva’s popular holiday weekend with the Geneva Chamber of Commerce holding its annual Christmas Walk & House Tour, Friday and Saturday, Dec. 3 and 4. For more information about the Geneva Cultural Arts Commission, visit www.genevarts.org.
