The Omer Quartet returns for their final performance capping its yearlong residency which included classroom-based instruction and performance clinics in Caramoor’s educational outreach program, as well as concerts in Caramoor’s fall and spring seasons. First Prize Winner in the 2017 Young Concert Artists International Auditions, the Omer presents the World Premiere of a Caramoor- commissioned quartet by Gabriella Smith, whose work has recently been performed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Argentinian composer Osvaldo Golijov’ Yiddishbuk, and Brahms’s lighthearted and cheerful Third String Quartet.

“Last year was a big one for the Omer Quartet. The group took second prize in the Trondheim Competition in Norway and first prize in the auditions held by Young Concert Artists. These four musicians, who came together at the Cleveland Institute of Music, certainly rose to the occasion.” — The New York Times

American mezzo-soprano Vivica Genaux has a rich history with Caramoor, having first come to the attention of NY audiences and critics with her performance in Rossini’s La Cenerentola here in 1996. Now, for the first time since 2009, she is back in the Venetian Theater with the dynamic, conductorless period-instrument orchestra, New York Baroque Incorporated. Genaux’s incredible command of coloratura shows off the vocal athleticism and emotional prowess which has made her one of the top operatic singers performing today. Join us for this rare US appearance by the mezzo-soprano in arias by Handel, Vivaldi, and Hasse.

Acclaimed folk duo The Milk Carton Kids bring a full band and their heartfelt melodies to headline Caramoor’s 9th annual American Roots Music Festival.

Tribu Baharú’s exuberant performances of champeta music — a fusion of Colombian, African, and Afro-Caribbean styles — are driven by lively vocals, sparkling Congolese guitar, and high-energy bass and drums. A Tribu Baharú performance recreates the joyous, impromptu spirit of the verbena dances that are popular in Colombian neighborhoods during festivals. With traces of soukous, zouk, calypso, soca, rap, and more, Tribu Baharú celebrates the colorful Colombian musical spectrum.

“There are very few guarantees in life. But one of them must — must! — be that as soon as you hear “Made in Tribu Baharú,” you’ll start moving. (I promise.)” — NPR Music
