Chautauqua Preservation Society - August 2016
"The World of Water" 

Sea Shanties
Come to the Chautauqua Stage!

These work songs of 15th century sailing ships will be brought to Chautauqua Sept. 24th by the Stonhenj Players.  This merry group of singers, dancers, actors - and even combatants! – specializes in the music and culture of the Renaissance Period. 

Their family-friendly and high-energy performance will entertain us and transport us to the Renaissance time period. Their  infectious, compelling rhythms and harmonies, funny songs, and touching ballads will get the audience involved and singing along!

In addition to Scarborough Faire and other Renaissance Festivals, the  Stonhenj Players  have performed at museums, schools, fairs, pubs, madrigal feasts, and even movie openings. 

Originally, the rhythm of the Sea Shanties helped synchronize the repetitive movements of the ship workers and relieved boredom and lightened the burden of such hard labor.

Latest Addition to "World of Water" Line-up:
Landscape Architect KEVIN SLOAN 

On Sept. 24, landscape architect and urban designer Kevin Sloan will challenge our ideas of both the inspiring and the practical role of water in our public and private landscapes. He will also give his thoughts on bringing the presence of water into our own yards and spaces.

Kevin Sloan's public projects are nationally and internationally recognized. His studio's projects range from large urban planning and landscape programs, crafted landscapes such as at the Dallas Urban Reserve, the Centennial Quadrangle and Pavilion at Southern Methodist University, the 17-acre spring fed Vitruvian Park or intricate objects such as the renowned “water table” fountains that are part of courtyards and gardens throughout DFW.  Learn more....

When we asked for a recommendation for a speaker on water in architecture from the American Institute of Architects Dallas, we were told Kevin Sloan was the one we needed and when we asked him, he said "yes" he would come!

H-E-B Teams Up with Chautauqua to
Bring Water Refreshment

We're trying something different this year at the Waxahachie Chautauqua.  With the theme of "Water" on our minds, H-E-B has offered to provide two "Water Filling Stations"  on the Chautauqua grounds on Sept. 24th, one close to the tents and the other next to the Auditorium.  At these stations, we can refill our cups and water bottles repeatedly with cool refreshing water all day long.   

We invite you to bring along your own cups or water bottles for filling. In addition, the Waxahachie Chautauqua will offer our own handsome cobalt blue aluminum water bottles with our logo (as above) for a suggested donation of just $3.00.  Our goal will be to use as few of the plastic water bottles as possible!  Thank you, H-E-B!    

Fabien Cousteau’s Undersea Mission 31

In 2014, Fabien Cousteau and his team lived for 31 days aboard the Aquarius, an 81-ton under-water research laboratory, situated 63 feet below the ocean surface in the Florida Keys. 
This expedition of ocean exploration and undersea filming was a tribute to Fabien’s renowned grandfather Jacques Cousteau’s 30-day underwater voyage in 1963.

Fabien’s team was able to go deeper, longer and further, with Mission 31 while broadcasting each moment live on multiple channels exposing the world to the adventure, drama and mystique of what lies beneath, keeping the entire world engaged on the importance of the human-ocean connection. 

Learn more here...  AND hear from Cousteau himself at Chautauqua on 9/24! 

Collecting Water from Chautauqua Lake
Chautauquan Kirk Hunter collects water from Chautauqua Lake, NY on his summer trip.  He will bring that water to the Waxahachie Chautauqua on Sept. 24th. 

Please bring a little water from your favorite water source to the Chautauqua Assembly - river, lake, puddle, ocean, well, tank, tub or any other wet place.  You can add it to this special collection!
