Opening Night 2019 will feature a double bill evening of singer-songwriters who will delight and inspire.

Born in Athens, Georgia, and often found in her adopted home of Paris, singer-songwriter Madeleine Peyroux has become one of the most acclaimed jazz singers of her generation. Eight albums and 22 years since her debut with Dreamland, Peyroux continues to challenge the confines of jazz, venturing into the fertile fields of contemporary music with unfading curiosity. She has remained one of the most respected jazz artists of the modern age, as celebrated for her diverse set of covers as for her own songwriting skills, as exemplified in her new album, Anthem.

Judy Collins has inspired audiences with sublime vocals and boldly vulnerable songwriting for over five decades, and her luminescent presence shines brightly as new generations bask in the glow of her iconic 50-album body of work. Having garnered several Top 10 hits and gold- and platinum-selling albums, Collins’ stunning rendition of Joni Mitchell's “Both Sides Now” from her landmark 1967 album Wildflowers has been entered into the Grammy Hall of Fame. Prolific as ever, Collins released a collaborative and Grammy-nominated album in June 2016, Silver Skies Blue. She continues to create music of hope and healing that lights up the world and speaks to the heart.

Under The Streetlamp, previously announced for this date, will now perform on July 12.
Hailing from Los Angeles, California, Dawes is a four-piece folk-rock band that creates a sound reminiscent of 1960s “Laurel Canyon” stalwarts such as Neil Young, Joni Mitchell and Crosby, Stills & Nash through their dynamic vocal harmonies and well-crafted acoustic songs. Featuring brothers Taylor Goldsmith (lead vocals/guitar) and Griffin Goldsmith (drums), Tay Strathairn (guitar) and Wylie Gelber (bass), the band has been featured on shows such as the “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Dawes’ sixth album, Passwords, quickly became a No. 1-ranked independent album on Billboard.

Come for Opening Night, stay for Week One:
Help us explore “Moments That Changed the World” 
How did we get to now? What wars did we have to fight, what sacrifices did we need to make? What innovation, invention, breakthrough paved the way for our life today? Whose words have inspired us? From revolutions to revelations, we look at moments when the ground shifted beneath humanity’s feet, and the moments when a new course of history was charted.
 What moment do you think changed the world?
What moment changed yours?


Our guides for the week include journalist Dan Egan, author of The Death and Life of the Great Lakes, and Hugh Hewitt, the prominent political commentator and host of "The Hugh Hewitt Show" on the Salem Radio Network. We're also pleased to welcome back Laurie Patton, president of Middlebury College, and Ori Soltes, professor of theology and fine arts at Georgetown, along with Ali S. Asani, professor of Indo-Muslim and Islamic religion and cultures at Harvard.

Elsewhere in Week One, we're pleased to host Rabbi Sharon Brous, senior and founding rabbi of IKAR, as Chautauqua's first-ever rabbi chaplain of the week, and scholar and writer John Keene will present Octavia E. Butler's best-selling novel Kindred for the CLSC.
