CHAUTAUQUA VIRTUAL OPERA COMPANY
In light of the social restrictions due to the COVID-19, Chautauqua Institution was forced to cancel all in-person programming. While this is a blow to those who call Chautauqua a summer home, this provided a unique opportunity to adapt to a digital presence, including the inaugural season of Chautauqua Opera's Virtual Young Artist program. As a member of this program, Michael will create digital content and be involved in extensive interviews, masterclasses, and virtual performances throughout the entirety of Chautauqua's virtual gathering.
Michael will be the first featured artist of the week, debuting a new art song as part of a song cycle composed to capture this moment in time as lived by the young artists of Chautauqua. All programming will be accessible on the Chautauqua Assembly app and Chautauqua's Virtual Porch. Click below to discover more about this new endeavor!
CHAUTAUQUA IN-PERSON SEASON CANCELED
On May 2, 2020, Chautauqua Institute President Michael E. Hill announced the cancelation of all in-person programming for the summer of 2020. This, unfortunately, includes the Chautauqua Opera's festival season. In a letter to the public, General and Artistic Director Steven Osgood stated, "The only bright spot I find in the decisions we make today is that the sole intention is to keep our company and community healthy so that we can gather again in the future, share a common space and experience great opera. Please stay safe, stay healthy, and stay connected with us over the coming months."
