CLASSICAL/JAZZ | Geneva Music Festival 

Beginning Thursday, May 31, there's a lot to love about the concerts at this year's Geneva Music Festival. With a full slate of dynamic performances by compelling artists, fans of chamber music can hear works by Bach, Britten, Dvoák, Fauré, Schoenberg, and more —featuring such artists as violinist Jinjoo Cho, pianist Michelle Cann, the Cavani Quartet, and festival director Geoffrey Herd on the violin. Other non-classical highlights include a Friday, June 8, concert featuring Broadway actor Syndee Winters, of "Hamilton" and "The Lion King," performing a tribute to the late famed singer Lena Horne entitled "LENA: A Moment with a Lady"; the centennial of jazz great Thelonious Monk will also be celebrated when the legendary musician's son, drummer and composer T.S. Monk, performs on Saturday, June 9 (joined by Winters). The festival culminates in a rollicking evening of bluegrass on Father's Day at Ravines Wine Cellars.

The Geneva Music Festival runs Thursday, May 31, through Sunday, June 17, at various locations in Geneva, Auburn, Canandaigua, and Skaneateles. Individual concert tickets are $25 each; season passes are $175. 315-521-1623; genevamusicfestival.com.
