Tomorrow (Thurs, July 30), the Fourth Annual Chamber Feast streams live from Caramoor. Showcasing alumni of the Evnin Rising Stars mentoring program in chamber works by Mozart, Tchaikovsky, and Shulamit Ran, this marks the latest in a series of on-site, professionally filmed concerts streaming live from the historic Rosen House Music Room. The livestream series forms part of Summer 20/2.0, Caramoor’s flexible new summer program, which also features Concerts on the Lawn: live, public, open-air concerts for small, socially distancing audiences. This Saturday (Aug 1), Charles Turner & Uptown Swing kick off the series on Friends Field. Offering an upbeat evening of swing, bebop, and blues, their performance will be filmed for streaming on Sunday (Aug 2).
Rain dates: Concert on the Lawn Sun, Aug 2; delayed stream Mon, Aug 3.
I’m Erin Harding, and I’ve just celebrated working one year at Caramoor. I currently work in the Development Department as the Special Events Assistant, helping to plan our benefits and tea programs for the year, and this past fall I deepened my appreciation of Caramoor while interning with Roanne Wilcox, Rosen House Director.
An Evening of Thanks
On Friday, April 26, Caramoor welcomed our beloved Rosen Society Members and special guests from the Encore Society to the seventh annual Rosen Society Dinner: An Evening of Thanks. In addition to celebrating our leadership donors, we paused for a special presentation by CEO Jeff Haydon acknowledging Leslie Williams & Jim Attwood as well as Judy & Tony Evnin for their support of the Music Room restoration.

The Passing of a Caramoorite …
In the spring of 1968, a young college graduate started working at the Box Office to help with Caramoor’s Summer Music Festival. That young man, Hilton Bailey, was to stay at Caramoor for 35 years — what may be the longest employment in Caramoor history — and his devotion matched his long tenure.
Most people know Caramoor for its spectacular theaters but not many people take some time before the concert to explore the landscape that surrounds them. We get it, sometimes it can seem overwhelming with the amount of acreage that Caramoor sits on. So to help you out, we have asked the Caramoor staff a simple question: “Where is your favorite Caramoor spot?” For a lot of us, when we need to take a break from the computer or if we feel that we need to take a breath of air after a long meeting, we tend to go to a favorite spot for a bit of quiet and serenity.

Although you might think that the focus at Caramoor is only about Music and the Arts, as we celebrate World Book Day, we would like to celebrate Caramoor’s and our founders’ love of this art form as well.
