Chautauqua: An American Utopia (Paperback)

Description
The lakeside community of Chautauqua, in upstate New York, is the home of the oldest summer arts festival in the United States: since 1874 people have been attracted to the Chautauqua Institution's programme of music, art, drama, discussion and recreation. This is an account of the institution's history. Chautauqua developed from an educational haven for Sunday-school teachers. As the community's tents were replaced by fanciful Victorian houses, its programmes expanded to include a full-scale resident symphony orchestra, an opera company, dance and theatre programmes, an art school, and lectures by speakers of world rewn, including nine US Presidents. A National Historic Landmark, Chautauqua is also a model for contemporary planned communities.
