HOLIDAY TEA MUSICALES at CaramoorJolly Saint Nick visits Caramoor filling the Rosen House with holiday cheer. The little ones will be in for an adventure with I Spy a Santa or two in the Music Room, followed by a twenty-minute concert of sing-alongs when Santa Claus will appear to the delight of the whole family. Santa’s favorite snack–milk and cookies–will be served in the cloisters. Bring your cameras and begin the festive season with joy!

Our Wednesday Morning Concert Series includes a joyful 45-minute concert in the majestic Music Room of the Rosen House followed by a docent-led tour of the Mediterranean-style mansion and the vast collection of fine and decorative art Walter and Lucie Rosen amassed throughout the years. The luncheon following the concert is SOLD OUT.

Evnin Rising Star alumni Karen Ouzounian, accompanied by Ieva Jokubaviciute, returns to Caramoor to tackle excerpts from the magnificent sonatas for cello and piano by Beethoven. The program traverses Beethoven’s three major creative periods, demonstrating the youthful and ambitious qualities of his early compositions, especially virtuosic for the piano, to the positivity, humor and utter joy of his middle period, to the romantic and polished characteristics of his late period.

Spooky Tea at CaramoorCome with your little one to a riveting performance in the Music Room with award-winning storyteller Laura Simms. This interactive event will offer young children spooky (but not scary) stories of goblins, ghosts, and happy witches. The performance is followed by a special brew (hot cider) and other ghostly treats (cookies) served in the Summer Dining Room. Costumes encouraged & prizes given to the best costumes (for all).

Laura Simms, one of America’s favorite storytellers, delights children with classic ghost and witchy tales from throughout the world.  Tailored just right for kids, these stories make you jump, lean in for more, squeal and laugh out loud. This event includes a classic American tale of The Big Toe, a Korean spirit story Woodcutter and the Snake, and zany participation in The Squeaky Door about a boy who was afraid of the dark.

Laura Simms is an internationally acclaimed storyteller and author.  She has been telling ghost stories for all ages since 1969.  For twenty years she told “spooky” tales for children in the American Museum of Natural History Theater and received the Sesame Street Sunshine Award for her work with children worldwide. Her most recent collection for children is Stories to Nourish the Hearts of Our Children. She encourages nonviolence through narrative projects for Rutgers University, Newark.

Suzanne Thorpe

Suzanne Thorpe is a musician/composer who works in a spectrum of modalities, fixed and improvised, installed and recorded. She plays electro-acoustic flute through an ever-evolving array of analog and digital effects, incorporating laptop upon whim. Her way is to listen for just-the-right sounds and timbres, and the appropriate moments to introduce them to each other.

Her composed works tend to be site-specific sound pieces that speak of, and with, their environment with an amalgam of sound sources, bringing forth moments of possibility and multiplicity. Her work has been shown and performed internationally, including All Tomorrow’s Parties (UK and U.S.), Roskilde (DK), The New Museum (NYC), Issue Project Room’s Floating Points Festival (NYC), Activating the Medium Festival (San Francisco), No Idea Festival (Austin), High Zero Festival (Baltimore), and exhibited at Klieo Gallery (NYC), Exit Art (NYC), Mills College (Oakland), California College of the Arts (Oakland) and more.

As an improviser she has enjoyed performing with Pauline Oliveros, Zeena Parkins, Gino Robair, Chris Brown, Zbigniew Karkowski, Anti-matter, Ulrich Krieger, Miguel Frasconi, Jenny Walsh, Miya Masaoka, Nate Wooley and Mazen Karbaj among others. She also has recurring collaborations with Philip White, Stephan Moore, and Bonnie Jones.

She has released over 20 recordings on labels such as Sony, V2, Beggars Banquet, Geffen, Specific Recordings, and Tape Drift, and was a founding member of critically acclaimed Mercury Rev, with whom she performed, recorded and toured from 1989–2001, earning a gold record for 1998’s Deserter’s Songs. She can more recently be heard on J Mascis’ solo record Several Shades of Why (Sub Pop) and Pauline Oliveros’ Primordial Lift (Lovely Records).

Ms. Thorpe has been the recipient of residencies and fellowships from Harvestworks Digital Media Foundation, Meet the Composer, and NYFA. She also was awarded the Frog Peak Collective Award for innovative research in the electronic music field. Currently, she is pursuing a Ph.D. in Music/Integrative Studies at University of California San Diego.

Award-winning vocalist Stravelli has garnered critical acclaim and a loyal following through her original songs and her unique take on material from the New American Songbook as well as classic standards by artists as varied as Pink Floyd and Duke Ellington, Dolly Parton and Johnny Mercer.  She has won rave reviews for her current performances of sold-out shows at New York City’s Metropolitan Room. “As she dipped and swooped, twirling notes and phrases with a confidence and playfulness that recalled Ella Fitzgerald in her prime, Mr. Stravelli began interpreting lyrics with a ferocity that her vocal pyrotechnics accentuated…” – Stephen Holden, New York Times

Stravelli toured the US with Wynton Marsalis in 2013 and sang with him in the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra performing Marsalis’s Abyssinian: A Gospel Celebration. A trained actor, Gabrielle has a soulful sensitivity for storyline in song and was called “a powerhouse of individual expression” by David Finkle of the Village Voice.  She has appeared as a soloist with the Nelson Riddle Orchestra and the Cincinnati Pops, sang the role of Anita in West Side Story with the Kentucky Symphony Orchestra, and performed the role of Jeannie in the European tour of HAIR. She sings with a “forceful, emotional presence and a versatile, well-shaded voice,” says Adam Feldman of Time Out New York, and Peter Haas of Cabaret Scenes, describes her voice as “clear and clean, expressive, supple, with unforced power.”
