Chautauqua Institution "Old First Night"

There is an annual program held on the first Tuesday of each August called "Old First Night." This is the "birthday party" for the Institution, marking the anniversary of the opening of the first season in 1874.Throughout the years however, as Chautauqua traditions have evolved or faded out,  new ones are incorporated. Old First Night used to end with the singing of Handel’s “Hallelujah Chorus.” For many years, a large birthday cake was served to the entire audience. That tradition didn’t last long, thanks to the heat, though Chautauquans are encouraged to eat birthday cake at home.
