The beautiful Community House was built in 1918 to serve as the “living room” to the original tent residents of the Colorado Chautauqua. Today, it is host to intimate concerts, forums, films and educational programs throughout the year.

Just as attending a concert in the Chautauqua Auditorium in on the summer “must-do’ list, Community House concerts are a favorite amongst audiences looking to experience music in an intimate atmosphere.

The Grand Assembly, located upstairs in the Community House, features exquisite Arts & Crafts architecture with a wrap-around balcony inside and a huge, covered porch outside overlooking a garden with a brick path. We hope you will join us soon to experience a special performance in this extraordinary setting.
