Week Six Inspirations

It’s week six here at Caramoor and that means we’re closing in on the final shows of our 2014 Summer Festival. We’ve had an amazing summer full of talent, energy, new experiences and new sounds and it is not over yet!

The Festival Finale with our Artist-in-Residence, Alisa Weilerstein, Orchestra of St. Luke’s, and Pablo Heras-Casado will close the festival after an exciting weekend featuring a recital by Alisa Weilerstein, chamber concert with Weilerstein and the Ariel Quartet, and a blow out Pat Metheny Unity Group (←→) Bruce Hornsby with Sonny Emory concert in the Venetian Theater.
