We have attended 6 Modern Chautauqua at Natural Bridge. Each one is better than the last. The organizers have developed a cadre of speakers who present new and exciting lectures each year. We shal return!

This was my first Road Scholar program. I'd heard many great things about the program from friends who have attended (some as many of 40 sessions over the years), so I expected to enjoy my "Virginia Chautauqua" adventure, but I had no idea I'd enjoy this much! Again and again throughout the week, I thought, "This is like the best college class I ever had -- except that ALL the students are the best in the class!" :) Not only was every presenter interesting, prepared and engaging, but the quality of the questions from the participants was inspiring, taking the topic in new, interesting directions. I loved every minute of it and was sorry when it was over. And our coordinators, Barbara and Jeffrey, were a joy be around.

Chautauqua at Natural Bridge (March 2014)was magical; educational, fun, and most of all entertaining. We will certainly return in the future. Highly recommended, Ray from NJ.
