Bay City Swing will perform at the final "Knights on the Fox" summer concert series of the season on Tuesday, July 19. Thomas Kunkel, president of 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.

Bay City Swing is a full 16-piece big band that has been entertaining audiences in Northeast Wisconsin for over 20 years. Their music ranges from the lush, sophisticated ballads of Frank Sinatra and Stan Kenton to the frenzied jitterbug swing and shuffle beat of Louis Prima and Benny Goodman.

"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 5p.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 between Third and Fourth Streets, with handicap accessible parking in the lot near Old St. Joseph Church. Follow the signs to the parking lots.
