FAMILY EVENT

Celebrate Independence Day on the Chautauqua Green!

This year’s concert will feature special guest conductor, Colonel Thomas H. Palmatier, who has prepared a rousing July 4th program. Colonel Palmatier was appointed Leader and Commander of The U.S. Army Band “Pershing’s Own” in August 2011 until his retirement in December 2014. His distinguished military career spanned more than 37 years as the Leader and Commander of The United States Army Band “Pershing’s Own,” the largest military music unit in the United States, and the senior musician in the U.S. Armed Forces.

Our Chautauqua Dining Hall will be hosting a 4th of July BBQ in tandem with the free concert from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Enjoy the menu of hamburgers, hot dogs, brats and side, and of course a full beer selection from Odell’s Brewery.

MUSIC

Jake Shimabukuro & Trace Bundy – July 6

Every major artist has that one defining album or performance, but for ukulele master Jake Shimabukuro, his entire career has been filled with such magical achievements. Since he first came to the world’s attention with his deeply beautiful and original take on George Harrison’s “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” in a viral video that dominated YouTube in 2005, the Hawaiian-born Shimabukuro has virtually reinvented the four-string instrument, causing many to call him “the Jimi Hendrix of the ukulele.”

Internationally-acclaimed guitar virtuoso Trace Bundy must be seen, not just heard. His music is poetry in motion, using harmonics, looping, multiple capos, and his unique banter and stage presence to deliver an unforgettable live concert experience. Listening to his intricate arrangements is one thing, but seeing the fan-dubbed “Acoustic Ninja” play live confounds even the most accomplished music lovers as to how one person can do all that with just two hands and ten fingers.

Don’t miss the incredible duo’s unique sound and a night you won’t forget. Saturday, July 6. 7:30 PM. Chautauqua Auditorium. Buy tickets online

Melissa Etheridge – July 8

Melissa Etheridge is one of rock music’s great female icons. Her critically acclaimed eponymous debut album was certified double platinum. Etheridge’s popularity grew around such memorable songs as “Bring Me Some Water,” “No Souvenirs” and “Ain’t It Heavy” for which she won her first Grammy for Best Female Rock Vocal. Etheridge hit her commercial and artistic stride with her fourth album, “Yes I Am,” featuring the massive hits “I’m the Only One” and “Come to My Window,” a searing song of longing that brought her a second Grammy. The six times platinum album spent more than two and a half years on the album chart. Etheridge is also an Oscar winner for Best Original Song in 2007. In 2011 Melissa made her Broadway debut as St. Jimmy in Green Day’s rock opera, “American Idiot,” where she replaced Billie Joe Armstrong for one week, and received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Join Melissa Etheridge for an evening of unforgettable songs and music from her latest album, “The Medicine Show.” Monday, July 8. 7:30 PM. Colorado Chautauqua Auditorium. Buy tickets online.
