Orpheus will take the stage at the "Knights on the Fox" summer concert series on Tuesday, July 5. Jim Stamatakos, associate director of admission at St. Norbert College, will serve as the evening's master of ceremonies. The concert, held in the heart of the St. Norbert College campus, is free and open to the public.

Orpheus is a high-energy ska band loved for their rock and ska covers as well as original tracks. The group, made up of 8 West De Pere high schoolers, promises non-stop "skanking," riveting vocals and a horn section like no other. Orpheus has played a variety of venues and festivals including Summerfest, The Rave and Sturgeon Bay's Steel Bridge Festival. The group was the winner of the 2010 Battle of the Bands competition in Anaheim, California.

"Knights on the Fox" features live music in a casual atmosphere along the banks of the Fox River. Carry in your own picnic--or purchase sandwiches, snacks and beverages at Phil's, St. Norbert's on-campus restaurant located in the Campus Center. Picnicking begins at 5 p.m., followed by the concerts from 6:30-8 p.m. Concerts will be canceled in the event of rain. Check the St. Norbert College website or call for updates on the status of the performance.

Concertgoers can arrive by land or by water, as the docks at the Thompson Marina will be open. Lawn chairs and blankets are suggested. Ample parking is available in the lots at Third Street and College Avenue, with handicapped parking in the lot near Old St. Joseph Church. Follow the signs to the parking lots.
