Things To Do
Chautauqua Summer Programs
Lectures, Art Classes, Children’s Programs & More. The popular Summer Programs series in the Chautauqua supports the mission of the Chautauqua and is organized under the four pillars of the Chautauqua movement: Arts/Culture, Recreation, Religion, and Education. Most of the programs are held in the Hall of Philosophy. The Summer Programs Committee, which plans the series, is part of the PA Chautauqua Board of Managers. Check out the website for additional information on classes and registration.
For 46 years we have presented the best of classical music and jazz. Recently we have expanded our offerings to include world music and dance. Performances regularly feature established world-class ensembles and soloists (46 Grammy winners and six MacArthur fellows and counting), as well as inspiring emerging artists. Our rural setting and the open-air playhouse make us even more unique. In order to allow everyone the opportunity to experience excellent music, we launched Gretna Music for Kids (GM4K), a series of interactive performances curated to foster a life-long love of live performing arts in youths, the next generation of concertgoers!
