Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts announces summer line-up
Live music fans, take note. The Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts announced its summer season, which promises 35 live, in-person performances across genres. The Katonah venue will host several premieres as well as an opening night gala featuring Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra.
“We’re so fortunate that our outdoor venues enable us to have a full concert season this summer, said Kathy Schuman, Caramoor’s artistic director. “Despite some operational differences, this year’s program remains as robust and varied as ever. We can’t wait to welcome audiences back to Caramoor for programs that run the gamut from celebratory to reflective. I think we’ve all deeply missed the kind of magical experience that comes from sharing live music in the company of others.”
Caramoor’s summer season runs for seven weeks from June 19 through August 8. Two post-season concert series will take place from August 13 – September 12. All performances will be held outdoors in the Venetian Theater and other venues on the estate, with reduced capacity to accommodate current state guidelines for public gatherings.
Among the live music offerings are: Alarm Will Sound, Apollo’s Fire, Chanticleer, Leonidas Kavakos, Amjad Ali Khan & Sharon Isbin, Pekka Kuusisto, Joan Osborne, Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, PUBLIQuartet, Sō Percussion, The Crossing, The Knights, Verona Quartet with David Fung, and Orchestra of St. Luke’s, Caramoor’s orchestra-in-residence for the past 42 summers.
Longtime fans of Caramoor’s offerings will be pleased to see the return of the annual Jazz Festival, American Roots Music Festival, and Pops & Patriots concert, signature and highly-anticipated events for the summer season.
All concertgoers and visitors will have the opportunity to explore Caramoor’s 80-acre grounds while on site, including woodlands, gardens, an outdoor performance space and a sound art installation, “Sonic Innovations.” Sonic Innovations will be available to guests Fridays through Sundays throughout the season.
