Are you familiar with the word, "Chautauqua?*" It refers to an institution that flourished in the late 19th and early 20th centuries providing popular entertainment and education in the form of lectures, concerts and plays -- often presented outdoors. Classical WNIU encourages you to experience this tradition brought back to life at the Midway Village Museum in Rockford, June 9th and 10th. In fact, John Heyl** Vincent -- a former Rockford minister -- was one of the founders of the Chautauqua movement, named for Chautauqua County, New York where the first gatherings began.
