Avett Brothers, Sheryl Crow, Lyle Lovett, Rhiannon Giddens, Jay Leno, Girl Named Tom Headline Initial Slate of Summer 2022 Concerts at Chautauqua
Amphitheater to Return to 100% Capacity; Tickets Available Now
CHAUTAUQUA, N.Y. — Chautauqua Institution today announced an initial slate of 2022 Amphitheater popular concerts, including appearances by The Avett Brothers (Aug. 24), Sheryl Crow (July 12), Lyle Lovett and His Large Band (July 29), Rhiannon Giddens with the Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra (Aug. 23), comedian Jay Leno (July 22) and the first ensemble winners of NBC’s “The Voice,” Girl Named Tom (Aug. 19).
The summer concert season begins with a show by popular violin-voice duo Joshua Bell and Larisa Martínez (June 25) and closes with a week of concerts — including Punch Brothers (Aug. 22) and Emmylou Harris and Mary Chapin Carpenter (Aug. 25) — alongside the popular Chautauqua Food Festival. Midway through the summer, Chautauqua will present a special program, Carl Reiner at 100: Celebrating a Comedy Legacy (July 27), in partnership with the National Comedy Center, featuring Reiner’s children and comedy legend Mel Brooks.
As a special bonus exclusive to Chautauqua, three of the artists featured in the final week of Chautauqua’s season — Rhiannon Giddens (Aug. 22), Chris Thile (Aug. 23) of Punch Brothers, and Scott Avett (Aug. 24) — will also appear as speakers on the Chautauqua Lecture Series platform, which is also held in the Amphitheater at 10:45 a.m. weekdays. The three lectures are part of a series titled “A Vibrant Tapestry: Exploring Creativity, Culture, and Faith with Smithsonian Folklife Festival,” and the three artists will speak about their art making, roots of folk music, and the tradition they are moving forward.
More concerts will be added to the 2022 Chautauqua calendar throughout the spring. Tickets for all announced shows can be purchased now by phone at 716-357-6250 or in person at the Institution’s Main Gate Welcome Center at 1 Massey Avenue, Chautauqua, New York. Online sales will begin on May 3.
The 4,400-seat, open-air Chautauqua Amphitheater will return to 100% capacity in 2022; a determination on any vaccine, testing or other COVID-19 requirements for concert attendees will be announced as summer approaches.
