If you’ve ever been to Caramoor – whether you’ve attended a concert, strolled along our grounds, toured the Rosen House, or visited In the Garden of Sonic Delights – then you’ve had the pleasure of interacting with our very dedicated and outstanding volunteers. They are so much more than just docents, ushers, audience greeters and tour guides, so we’d like to introduce you to our volunteers through our Volunteer Spotlight!

If you could only listen to one artist for the rest of your life, who would it be?
What’s one story about your time at Caramoor that sticks out to you?
Early on as a volunteer, at a Rising Stars Concert, I was told to sit and enjoy the show. I was sitting in my seat with a lovely couple sitting behind me. During the second half of the show, the husband leaned forward and sang softly the words to the love song to his wife. It was a pure magic moment. I was very touched by their love for one another. (And it was a wonderful reminder of the love my husband and I shared.)
The couple turned out to be Adela and Lawrence Elow.
