Your CHQ Assembly Complimentary Subscription

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Chautauqua Institution during the 2021 Summer Assembly. As a long-term gate pass purchaser, you are entitled to a 90-day CHQ Assembly subscription so you can engage with Chautauqua before, during and after your time with us on the grounds.

The following are instructions for creating your CHQ Assembly subscription or adding this benefit to an existing subscription. Since there are several different patron scenarios, please choose the one that applies to you.

  1. If you have never had a CHQ Assembly subscription or Free Trial, please follow the instructions below or watch this brief instructional video.
    • If signing up for a monthly subscription:

    You do no not need to take any action. We have extended your annual subscription by 90 days.

    Note:  If you subscribed initially from a mobile or TV app, we are unable to apply a coupon code within the TV or Mobile Apps.  Please email Emily Morris at emorris@chq.org for options.

Information for all subscribers:

  • Three members of your family/household may login to CHQ Assembly at the same account at the same time.
  • If you need more than one subscription to accommodate your viewing needs, or you wish to gift a subscription to someone rather than use this benefit yourself, the promotional code above can be replicated for each long-term gate pass you have purchased in 2021. So, if you have two season or two week-long passes, you may apply this code to two CHQ Assembly accounts. If you are gifting an account to someone, be sure to share the login instruction set that applies to their circumstance.
  • We will present on CHQ Assembly live and on-demand nearly all 10:30 a.m. EDT and 1 p.m. EDT lectures as well as Morning Worship, Literary Arts, African American Heritage House, and Chautauqua Women’s Club programs. We will present as many evening entertainment events as contracts and licensing permit.
    • You can see the list of programs confirmed for presentation by clicking on the “Schedule” link in the CHQ Assembly menu, which will take you to a filtered view on CHQ.org of only events that will be presented on CHQ Assembly. Check back often as not all events that will be presented are currently listed there, but they will be soon.
    • Watch CHQ for U and see our new CHQ Assembly host Amy Oshier. Amy will host CHQ for U Monday – Thursday mornings live at 10:20 a.m. just prior to the start of the 10:30 lecture. Fridays, CHQ for U will begin at 10:30 a.m. and will be an extended show previewing the forthcoming week’s programming. All episodes of CHQ for U will also be available on-demand.
