A fictional investigation of the real life Nickel Mines school shooting, this riveting one-woman show explores the Amish community's concept of radical forgiveness. Performed by a CTC Conservatory alumni, The Amish Project portrays two communities shattered by a mass shooting, and the journey to healing.

We launch our week on storytelling, influence and civil discourse with a panel conversation convened by Emmy Award-winning and Oscar-nominated filmmaker Ken Burns. Collaborating to produce some of the most acclaimed historical documentaries ever made, the panelists will explore the art of storytelling through documentary film as well as the process of film production - lessons learned, boundaries crossed and aspirations for the future.

An Evening with The Avett Brothers

8/20/2018 - 08:15pm

Venue: Amphitheater

All seating for this performance is sold out.


Returning to Chautauqua after their 2016 debut, this beloved group will have both new and returning Chautauquans singing songs of raucous joy and true sadness. The music has roots in traditional folk and bluegrass, but also ignites the energy and no-boundaries attitude of rock & roll. Their most recent album, True Sadness, dominated multiple charts and garnered overwhelming critical acclaim. Rolling Stone extolled it as "Their most heart-baring LP," while People claimed, "The sincerity of the lyrics keeps the boys true to their roots."
"We made this record as people who have made records together before --with experienced hands, appreciative hearts, renewed focus, and the knowledge of our good fortune to make music once again." --The Avett Brothers

Ranky Tanky

8/23/2018 - 08:15pm

Venue: Amphitheater

Translated loosely as "Work It" or "Get Funky," Ranky Tanky performs timeless music of Gullah culture born in the southeastern Sea Island region of the United States. From playful game songs to ecstatic shouts, from heartbreaking spirituals to delicate lullabies, the musical roots of Charleston, SC are "rank" and fertile ground from which these artists have grown. Gullah comes from West African language and means "a people blessed by God." Their October 2017 debut album soared to the number one positions on the Billboard, I-Tunes and Amazon Jazz Charts, quickly leading to the group being profiled on NPR's "Fresh Air with Terry Gross." Be blessed, get funky and experience the band that is reviving a heartland of American music.
