Weekly Digest 📰 2021 Ticketing and Safety Protocols Update, New Interfaith Confirmations
Chautauqua Institution :: Your Weekly Digest
In recent weeks we've reached a number of our seasonal milestones in the lead-up to the 2021 Summer Assembly, including the opening of the Chautauqua Golf Club and Heirloom Restaurant at the Athenaeum Hotel. Bestor Plaza flower beds have been tended. Lights are on at Carnahan-Jackson Dance Studio as Dance Theatre of Harlem continues its multiweek Chautauqua residency. The drumbeat is palpable: A new Chautauqua season draws ever closer.

As we approach Week One, we know you have plenty of questions of how anticipated regulations and restrictions will impact your Chautauqua experience — today, we can offer some further clarity. Read on for those details and a number of exciting new announcements from our Department of Religion, plus a listing of upcoming CHQ Assembly programs (including a change in date for the next spring CLSC event).
New Details About Your 2021 Chautauqua Experience
Thank you for your patience as we awaited more definitive information from New York State regarding COVID-19 operational regulations and protocols for presenting organizations such as Chautauqua Institution. While guidance from the state continues to evolve, at last, we are at a point where we can share some detail about how Chautauqua will come to life in 2021 — and how that will be similar to and different from recent years. One thing we know for sure is that the experience each of us has at Chautauqua will depend on all of us approaching this summer with a spirit of understanding, flexibility and looking out for each other.

The continuing GOOD news is we will be together again on the grounds of our beloved Chautauqua. Through weekly email updates, we are sharing news of the worship, lecture, youth, education, schools, recreation, and performing and visual arts programs we are planning, and we hope you can see that our staff and collaborating preachers, speakers, teachers, and artists are demonstrating amazing creativity and innovation in bringing to life a diverse and exciting program for this summer. Your willingness to be creative and flexible along with us will make for an enriching experience for all.

That said, this summer will look very different. Click or tap the button below for an initial set of details distilled from a series of updated requirements issued recently by New York State related to how we can operate our venues, food services and grounds this summer. Please note that Chautauqua Institution is subject to these requirements and our operations must follow them. The Institution will do everything possible to implement these measures as efficiently and safely as possible, including to preserve and honor the Chautauqua experience that our community cherishes.

Before we dive into details, we need to flag one item: To manage within the anticipated capacities required by New York State, we are suspending sales of Traditional Gate Passes for Weeks One–Five at the close of business on Monday, April 26, until further notice. Grounds Access Passes will remain available. While we understand this is a step we’ve not had to take previously, we believe it a prudent tactic to help ensure we meet our commitments to you regarding your experience.

In the Community
Highlighting the Institution's work to benefit the greater Chautauqua region
  • 2021 Chautauqua Music Camps: Chautauqua Arts Education is pleased to offer the Chautauqua Music Camps in 2021, during Week Eight (Aug. 16–20). Students will be able to participate on-grounds in one of three offerings: Middle School Band Camp, String Ensemble, and Jazz Combos. Enrollment will be limited to permit adherence to health and safety guidelines. Registration deadline is June 15. For more information and to register, visit artsed.chq.org.
  • Spring Arts Education Registration Open: Chautauqua Arts Education is offering three online offerings this spring, and registration is now open for any Pre-K to 12 school to participate.

  • White Named NAWA Artist of the Day: Chautauquan Lauralynn White was showcased as the National Association of Women Artists' Artist of the Day on April 14. White has served as an instructor within Chautauqua's Special Studies community education program and previously was curator/director of the Contemporary Art Gallery within the Red Brick Farm Marketplace in Mayville.
Maximize your generosity
Utilizing a corporate matching gift is a significant and easy way to leverage your generosity to support the things, people and places you care about most. You may be able to double, or in some cases triple, your contribution. To see if the company you work for — or have retired from — has a matching gift program, check with your HR/personnel department. To make a gift, visit giving.chq.org or contact the Office of Advancement at 716-357-6404 or advancement@chq.org.
Over 18 million individuals work for companies with matching gift programs, yet only 7% of eligible employees annually take advantage of these opportunities to maximize their giving. When you support Chautauqua’s programs with a charitable contribution, your gift may qualify to be matched by your employer, even if you have retired.
What's Happening on the Grounds
Chautauqua's grounds are open throughout the year for shopping, dining and exploring. Track the status of Chautauqua systems, facilities and operations at chqstatus.com. All gates are open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., no pass required. View updated resources here:

Weekly Digest 📰 2021 Theater Season and New Lecture Announcements
Chautauqua Institution :: Your Weekly Digest
Spring is in full swing at Chautauqua, and this week we’ve got another impressive slate of #CHQ2021 announcements, as you’ll read below. We’re particularly pleased and excited to share 2021 plans for Chautauqua Theater Company, whose leaders have designed a special season to accommodate all we expect to encounter this summer. Have you made your Chautauqua plans yet?
CTC Embraces Spirit of Creativity, Opportunity in 2021 Season
Chautauqua Theater Company (CTC) today unveils program plans for the 2021 season, including three mainstage productions at the open-air Performance Pavilion on Pratt Avenue, a modified version of the renowned New Play Workshops.
 
The mainstage performances showcase CTC’s versatility and commitment to elevating BIPOC voices, through presentations of Dominique Morrisseau’s Blood at the Root and George Stevens Jr.’s Thurgood, alongside original productions of the centuries-old Commedia dell’arte form. The 2021 repertoire responds to the issues of the day and the challenges of performing live in what everyone hopes will be the final months of the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
“Our team is elated to return to the stage with our beloved Chautauqua audience, and in a thoughtful way that ensures their safety and that of our artists and crews. In this summer of creativity born of limitation, we will discover much about ourselves and each other that we will carry into 2022 with the return of our full company,” said Andrew Borba, artistic director of Chautauqua Theater Company.

Youth Programs Registration Begins April 13

Beginning tomorrow, April 13, we're pleased to offer registration for 2021 Youth Programs at Chautauqua, including Children's School, Group One and Boys' and Girls' Club. You may register your Youth Programs participants by visiting chqtickets.com or calling 716-357-6250. Please note that availability may be limited depending on the week(s) selected.

For the 2021 summer, we’re planning to offer our traditional Youth and Family Programs with modifications to accommodate anticipated federal, state and local regulations to ensure the health and safety of the children and staff. These modifications will include reduced group sizes, changes to program structure, and optimization of outdoor space and time to ensure safety and compliance with New York state regulations.

Our leadership and staff will do all we can to curate an experience as “normal” as possible. At the same time, children and families should expect some of the same participation requirements they have honored in their home schools and other group programs, including the requirement of face masks and heightened attention to handwashing and other hygiene practices. We also hope to continue cherished traditions such as Air Band, the Fourth of July Parade, and special days at Club, to the extent we are permitted and able.

We ask that you complete this even if you completed our first survey. In this case, do not try to recall how you answered the questions previously.
