About Jennifer Sheehan
A quickly rising international star of the music world, Jennifer Sheehan has become a sought-after voice of concert and cabaret. The New York Times said “The beauty of Ms. Sheehan’s voice is refreshingly unvarnished and devoid of circus tricks. Drawing from a deep well of feeling, she interprets lyrics from the point of view of someone who knows who she is and conveys empathy in a voice that glows with insight.” A star in the concert and cabaret world, Ms. Sheehan has performed as one of six vocalists in Radio City Music Hall’s “Christmas Spectacular,” and has appeared in shows at the 92nd Street Y, the York Theater, the Bard Summerscape Festival, Boston Musical Theater and on national tours. She previously performed a critically acclaimed two week run of “I Know A Place – Spend a Night in the Sensational ‘60s” at Feinstein’s at Loews Regency along with a sold-out run of her show “You Made Me Love You – Celebrating 100 Years of the Great American Songbook” at the Metropolitan Room in New York.
Caramoor is the legacy of Walter and Lucie Rosen, who built their summer home – now known as the historic Rosen House at Caramoor – and filled it with their treasures. Walter Rosen was the master planner for the Caramoor estate, realizing his dream of creating a place to entertain friends from around the world. Their musical evenings planted the seeds for today’s Caramoor Summer Music Festival. Witnessing the pleasure their friends took in the beauty of Caramoor – the house with its art collection, the gardens, and the musical programs on summer evenings – the Rosens established a public trust to open Caramoor to the community in 1946. Lucie Rosen survived her husband by seventeen years. During those years, she expanded the Music Festival. The Spanish Courtyard was used as a setting for musical events, as it is today, and, under her direction, the great stage of the Venetian Theater was built.
Caramoor is a performing arts center located on a unique 90-acre setting of Italianate architecture and gardens in Westchester County, NY. It enriches the lives of its audiences through innovative and diverse musical performances of the highest quality. Its mission also includes mentoring young professional musicians and providing educational programs for young children centered on music. It is often described as “a Garden of Great Music,” where audiences are invited to come early, explore the beautiful grounds, enjoy a pre-concert picnic, and discover beautiful music in the relaxed settings of the Venetian Theater, Spanish Courtyard, Music Room of the Rosen House, and the magnificent gardens.
With its unique heritage, Caramoor remains a place where magical summer days and nights are shared and enjoyed by thousands. “Caramoor is the loveliest Festival of them all.” – The New York Times.
