February has arrived with something for everyone! Enjoy an eclectic night of music, film and storytelling with David Amram; journey to one of the world’s highest peaks; rediscover your connection with nature; discover how children learn math and science; or enjoy an evening of bluegrass with aficionados Jake Schepps and Matt Flinner.


David Amram’s America – February 8

David Amram has been described as “one of the most versatile and skilled musicians America has ever produced” and has worked alongside such greats as Dizzy Gillespie, Jack Kerouac and Woody Guthrie.

David will join us to play music, describe his creative process, regale stories, and host a Q&A session after a screening of the iconic 30-minute beat generation film “Pull My Daisy,” for which he wrote the score and starred alongside Allen Ginsberg. He will also discuss his latest project with the Colorado Symphony, a symphonic CD titled, “This Land: Symphonic Variations on a song by Woody Guthrie,” which Woody Guthrie’s family commissioned David to write, and will be released this February.

This will be an exciting and lively night of music, storytelling and film you won’t want to miss! Sunday, February 8. 8 PM. Chautauqua Community House. Buy tickets online.

Jake Schepps Quintet featuring Matt Flinner – February 27

The Jake Schepps Quintet, along with mandolinist-composer Matt Flinner, rewire, reboot and re-contextualize the quintessential bluegrass combo of banjo, mandolin, guitar, violin and bass on their new album “Entwined.”

This special CD release concert will include selections from the album, including monumental new four-movement works rooted in a worldly new acoustic aesthetic, as well as bluegrass, Béla Bartók and more. Friday, February 27. 7:30 PM. Chautauqua Community House. Buy tickets online.



Marc Bekoff: Rewilding our Hearts – February 10

Marc Bekoff’s areas of research focus on animal behavior, animal cognitive ethology (the study of animal minds) and compassionate conservation.

Touching on this research, Marc will argue that the lasting effects of our current conversation efforts will be short-lived if we, as humans, cannot profoundly change our attitudes and reconnect to nature by “rewilding” ourselves. This concept of “rewilding,” or making wild once again, is the focus of his latest work, “Rewilding Our Hearts,” which describes the need for this fundamental shift in human consciousness and the creation of corridors between lands that allow declining populations to recover. Tuesday, February 10. 7:00 PM. Chautauqua Community House. Buy tickets online.



How Children Learn Math & Science – February 18

Math and science are often thought of as challenging subjects that can prevent children from being successful in school. However, many aspects of math and science appeal to students’ hearts and minds.

CU Professors Edd Taylor & Valerie Otero will discuss which aspects are inviting and empowering for students and how the two subjects appeal to curiosity and problem-solving instincts. They will also discuss the rationale for changes in math and science classrooms and the changing roles for parents in this somewhat unfamiliar space. Wednesday, February 18. 7 PM. Chautauqua Community House. Buy tickets online.



K2: Siren of the Himalayas – February 20

“K2: Siren of the Himalayas” documents the adventure, peril, teamwork, and serenity of a mountaineering group’s attempt to summit the world’s most challenging peak. The documentary examines the history and geography of the Karakoram Mountains, while contemplating the risks, rewards and personal nature of exploration in an age when there are few blank spots left on the map. Lead climber Fabrizio Zangrilli will lead a post-screening discussion.

Watch the trailer before joining us for the screening! Friday, February 20. 7:30 PM. Chautauqua Community House. Buy tickets online.
