Lakeside Chautauqua Workshops
This summer, Lakeside Chautauqua is collaborating with the Ohio Arts Council, Heidelberg University and others to present a series of new, engaging music and creative workshops for students, educators and the community. These programs are inspired by using the arts and the mission of Chautauqua to help in developing one’s musical skills, creative opportunities, historical and cultural knowledge, and exploring methods for good mental health. Designed for ages 14+, check out these new workshops and opportunities to enhance your creative skills and experiences in music.
