Hochul plans stop in Chautauqua; programs continue on schedule today

CHAUTAUQUA — New York state Gov. Kathy Hochul will be visiting the grounds of Chautauqua Institution this afternoon following the aftermath of the attack on internationally known author Salman Rushdie. Hochul is expected to issue remarks around 4 p.m.

In the meantime, Chautauqua’s programs were set to proceed as scheduled today, according to a post on Facebook. The morning worship started at 10:45 a.m. with the the Very Rev. Dr. Kelly Brown Douglas and the Chautauqua School of Dance Student Gala performance at 2:30 p.m.

Admission is free for Sundays, but the institution will not be issuing anonymous passes. “All patrons arriving today must present a photo ID at the Main Gate Ticket Office. Please arrive early to ensure you are able to get to your desired program on time. We appreciate your patience,” the post said.
