Our Artistic Director and Cellist Edward Arron has performed at Caramoor flawlessly, rain or shine over 50 times (in fact 2012 was the first time in many years in which it did not rain throughout the performance!) No matter the weather, it never stops Mr. Arron from entertaining a crowd of chamber music lovers. His astounding knowledge and love for music is evident every time he appears on stage. Arron has been studying music since the young age of 7 and has taken his talents through a whirlwind of performances. The New Yorker states that, “Edward Arron is not only one of New York’s most exciting young cellists but also an inventive impresario.”
When not at Caramoor, Eddie (as we call him here at Caramoor) is also the artistic director of the critically acclaimed Metropolitan Museum Artists in Concert, a chamber music series created in 2003 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Museum’s concerts and lectures series. He has filled some of the most prestigious venues in Manhattan with his elegant music, including Carnegie’s Weill and Zankel Halls, Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully and Avery Fisher Halls, New York’s Town Hall and the 92nd Street Y. He also frequently performs at Bargemusic, a floating concert hall at the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge. Arron is recognized worldwide, appearing in recital, as a soloist with orchestra, and as a chamber musician throughout the US, Europe and Asia, including numerous summer festival appearances. This summer we are looking forward to Mr. Arron’s performances on June 27and 28.
