Winter Village Paused in 2020: While we still encourage safe exploration of the Chautauqua grounds and patronage of our businesses throughout the fall and winter, Chautauqua will not host Winter Village festivities this coming holiday season. Bestor Plaza and other areas on the grounds will be decorated and illuminated to the extent we are able with our limited in-house team. We look forward to welcoming our residents and regional neighbors back in 2021.

JAZZ SeptetJazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra Septet with Wynton Marsalis

Chautauqua Residency • October 14–24

October will be the month for jazz at Chautauqua, as we will host the JLCO Septet with Wynton Marsalis for a unique 10-day residency, Oct. 14 to 24, focused on improvisation, blues and swing. The ensemble's performances will take place at Elizabeth S. Lenna Hall for streaming at a later date on the CHQ Assembly Video Platform, but viewable live by attendees of six special jazz-themed dinners and brunches. Additionally, Marsalis will present three live conversations on the CHQ Assembly Virtual Porch, and JLCO musicians and leaders will present a series of courses on jazz classics and culture via the CHQ Assembly Classroom.
