Whitman served in the cabinet of President George W. Bush as administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency from January 2001 to June 2003. She was the 50th governor of the state of New Jersey, serving as its first woman governor from 1994 until 2001.

Pink Martini returns to Chautauqua to start our summer with music that draws from big band, classical, jazz and old‐fashioned pop. This rollicking ensemble draws inspiration from Cole Porter and Duke Ellington, Tito Puente and Xavier Cugat, as well as Argentine tango, Brazilian samba, Italian folk and Hollywood musicals of the 1940s and '50s. Pink Martini has released 11 studio albums on its independent label Heinz Records (named after Lauderdale's dog), selling over 3 million albums worldwide. Television appearances include The Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Later with Jools Holland, and a feature on CBS Sunday Morning. Start your summer with some sizzle!
"Pink Martini is a rollicking around‐the‐world musical adventure... if the United Nations had a house band in 1962, hopefully we'd be that band."
— Thomas Lauderdale, bandleader/pianist

Tired of the same ole' stump speeches? Experiencing voter fatigue? Time to start your summer with a laugh! No matter who or what is in the headlines, you can count on the Capitol Steps to tackle both sides of the political spectrum and all things equally foolish. What more would you expect from the group that puts the "MOCK" in Democracy? The Capitol Steps have recorded over 35 albums, including their latest, The Lyin' Kings. They've been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and PBS, and can be heard twice a year on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their "Politics Takes a Holiday" radio specials. Don't miss this opportunity to gather with friends in the Chautauqua Amphitheater to be equally offended!
