MUSIC

Peter Kater & R. Carlos Nakai – July 18

After recording many successful solo projects, R. Carlos Nakai and Peter Kater began collaborating together in 1989 with their first recordings, “Natives” and “Migration.” Several million CD sales and 21 combined Grammy Award nominations later, the release of their recent “Ritual” recording has put them back on the road performing their unique hybrid style of innovative contemporary instrumental music.

Of Navajo-Ute heritage, R. Carlos Nakai is the world’s premier performer of the Native American flute. Nakai brought the flute into the concert hall, performing with over fifteen symphony and chamber orchestras and in cross-cultural forays.

Ten time Grammy Award nominee Peter Kater is a multi-platinum selling pianist composer who has released over 60 recordings and scored many projects, including over 100 TV, film and Broadway productions.

Saturday, July 18. 8:00 PM. Chautauqua Auditorium. Ride the free HOP 2 Chautauqua to this show! Buy tickets online.

SILENT FILM

People on Sunday – July 22

Hailed as a work of genius, the 1930 “People on Sunday” (“Menschen am Sonntag”) is notable not only for its portrayal of daily life in Berlin shortly before Adolf Hitler became Chancellor, but also as an early work of future Hollywood writer and director Billy Wilder. The film is an effervescent, sunlit silent about a handful of city dwellers enjoying a weekend outing. It is a unique hybrid of documentary (the actors were amateurs whose day jobs were those that they portrayed in the film) and fictional storytelling, and the lightly scripted work became a surprise hit. With live musical accompaniment by the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra. Wednesday, July 22. 7:30 PM. Chautauqua Auditorium. Buy tickets online.
