Frequently Asked Questions

Q: May I request a specific student or sponsor?
A: Yes, you may, and we will do our best to grant your request.

Q: What if I am only going to be there for part of the season?
A: We'll try to pair you with another sponsor who will be there when you are.

Q: How will I meet my connections?
A: We will send you your students' names and information as soon as we can -- and you may contact them immediately. But you will certainly meet them at the Chautauqua Connections Opening Picnic, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, June 30, 2015, probably on the lawn between McKnight and Lenna Halls.

Q: Are there other Connections events in addition to the opening picnic?
A: Not in 2015.

Q: Are there other ways to help?
A: Yes, by facilitating communication between School of Music and sponsors, with set up/clean up for opening picnic, at registration, and more.
