 You might say the first week of Chautauqua Institution lecture series  Friday, was filled with the “Sound of Music.” 

Thousands of visitors flocked to to hear a conversation and selections with award-winning actress and singer Julie Andrews. 

Andrews is also an author of children’s book. She was joined by her daughter, Emma Walton Hamilton, also an children’s book author. 

Andrews is well-known for her popular early roles as Mary Poppins in 1964 and as Maria von Trapp in the Sound of Music that debut in 1965.

Week Two begins Monday, July 2 featuring retired PBS NewsHour anchor Jim Lehrer. His appearance is titled “The Lehrer Report: What Informed Voters Need to Know.

Listen Monday to WBFO & AM-970 at 6:30 & 8:30 on the local segment of Morning Edition for Mark Scott’s special reports from Chautauqua on the 2012 series.
