Aretha Franklin To Headline First Performance At New Amp- THE POST JOURNAL


Setting The Stage

The first performer to grace the stage at the new Amphitheater this summer will be none other than Aretha Franklin.
Jordan Steves, Chautauqua Institution interim vice president of Marketing and Communications and director of communications, said the institution is honored to welcome Franklin to the new facility. She recently announce she will be retiring later in the year, which will make the sold out June 24 performance one of her last, Steves said.
“We start out 2017 with a bang with Aretha Franklin,” he said. “We can’t think of a better way to start out a new era with a new Amp.”
The new Amphitheater is still under construction, but the progress is going well, Steves said.
“We are really looking forward to starting a new season with the new Amphitheater,” he said. “Things are going really well. The weather has been really cooperative for the most part … we’re on schedule if not a little bit ahead.”

As for the construction, currently, the crews are working on finishing the concrete in the bowl of the structure, while other members of the crew are installing the ceiling which will be reminiscent of the old Amphitheater ceiling. Steves said roof work is also continuing on the metal roof.
In the back-of-house, he said a lot of finish work is being done, such as installing fixtures, mechanical, electrical and plumbing work.
“That’s all been progressing very well,” Steves said.
Steves said the institution administration is “exceedingly optimistic” that the project will be completed in time for the opening of the season. Likewise, the Jamestown High School graduation will be the first public event held in the new Amphitheater, he said.
All-County Spring Festival has been moved to the State University of New York at Fredonia as the timeline was a little too tight, Steves said. However, he said the hope is it is a temporary relocation.

After the Amphitheater project is finished, Steves said other smaller projects could be necessary on the institution grounds, such as improvement of the School of Fine and Performing Arts dormitory facilities, but nothing to the size of this project.
“When you have a campus as big as ours, there is always something to maintain,” he said. “I don’t think, at least in my time working at Chautauqua, there will ever be as big of a project as the Amphitheater project.”

Chautauqua Lake to benefit from water quality improvement projects



ASHVILLE — On Feb. 28, a conservationist from the Chautauqua Watershed Conservancy presented on Chautauqua Lake’s water quality improvement projects for an audience in Ashville.
The presentation focused on which projects have been completed, which projects will be addressed next, and why Chautauqua Lake’s water quality needs improvement.
Last summer and fall, the Water Quality Improvement Project program stabilized sections of Bemus Creek and Prendergast Creek. In total, 1,970 feet of stream corridor was stabilized and 1,150 linear feet of stone toe protection was installed. In the future, these projects will stabilize sections of Goose, Bemus, Dutch Hollow, the west branch of Dutch Hollow and Ball creeks.
Chautauqua Lake is plagued with sedimentation problems and harmful algae due to the history and developed nature of its watershed. Many tributary streams are eroding and releasing high-nutrient sediment into Chautauqua Lake each year. This sediment can cause navigation problems at the creek’s mouths, and also supports the growth of harmful algae and nuisance aquatic vegetation. Stabilizing these streams to reduce the erosion is an important step toward keeping Chautauqua Lake beautiful and open to recreation through the summer months.
To learn more about these water quality improvement projects or to schedule a meeting with a CWC conservationist to look at an eroding stream on your property, call the group at 664-2166.
