Michael Shirtz will be transitioning from the vice president of Programming on Labor Day to a new role developing creative arts and innovative education at Lakeside. He will work alongside Kip Greenhill, Charles Allen, and the Lakeside Programming team in continuing to enrich the Lakeside experience. With this transition Shirtz will return to the music industry and his work as a performer, composer, producer, and conductor. Shirtz joined Lakeside’s administration in fall of 2018 with the purpose of developing a performing arts institute. Due to leadership transitions, Shirtz became interim vice president for Programming, Marketing, and Advancement for much of his tenure, seeing the departments through several changeovers and leading programming through two years of operating during the pandemic. We are excited about this new role for Shirtz and the impact it will have on programming.
Rev. Dr. Charles Yoost will be joining the senior team in his new role as senior director of Religious Life & Pastoral Care. In his expanded role, Dr. Yoost will provide a pastoral presence to the leadership, focusing on staff care, as well as be involved with staff planning and development. Yoost joined the Lakeside team in fall of 2018 and has continually advanced the Religious Life pillar through new and diverse Preachers of the Week, workshops and seminars, and oversaw the introduction of new programs with youth and teens, spiritual direction, and connecting people virtually during the pandemic.

Please join us as we celebrate Michael Shirtz and the Rev Dr. Charles Yoost for their past contributions and their future impact in new roles within Lakeside Chautauqua.

Summer Celebration
Sunday, Sept. 5 | 7 p.m.

All visitors and friends to Lakeside Chautauqua will want to be part of the Closing Celebration of the 148th Summer Season. It will take place at the Steele Memorial Bandstand at 7 p.m. on Sunday, September 5. The fun will begin as Chip Richter and John Wilkie delight the crowd with favorite songs from their repertoire.

The youth of Lakeside Chautauqua will be on hand to present the community with three “Buddy Benches” made from recycled plastic bottle caps collected over the summer from Lakesiders. This project is just one example of the transformation that happens when people of goodwill join together in friendship and creativity!

Michael and Pam Shirtz will share their musical talent as we light candles of hope to conclude the evening before the setting of the sun. Mark your calendar and plan to attend! - Rev. Dr. Charles Yoost
