Music at Chautauqua

From Chautauqua, Thedore Morrison

The Chautauqua Band, photographed in 1903, played informal concerts on the lawn of the Athenaeum hotel as well as formal ones in the amphitheater. The sheet music and hymns below were written by Mary Lathbury at Chautauqua and became an integral part of religious services.

Sheet music reproduced in John H. Vincent, The Chautauqua Movement.
