New York Festival of Song’s sixth annual professional training residency with Caramoor, featuring the Terrance W. Schwab Vocal Rising Stars with Michael Barrett and Steven Blier at the piano.

Ports of Call takes the audience on a musical trip around the world—from New York to South America, then through Europe, Scandinavia, Russia, the South Sea, the far East, and finally home. On the journey we meet a fascinating cast of characters, people in transit for every possible reason: vacationers, political fugitives, missionaries, merchants, sailors, and wanderers in search of new horizons. The music covers the globe too, with contributions ranging from Rimsky-Korsakov and Guastavino to Bolcom and Porter. The musical itinerary is rich and varied, with beautiful (and funny) songs from the four corners of the globe.

I am looking forward to this gorgeous, crazy program, which embraces everything from opera and art song to musical theater, cabaret, and even a song from a movie. At last count there were eight languages in the show—all in a day’s work for this brilliant cast of young artists. Ports of Call ranges from high comedy to high drama, and will encourage the singers to explore and expand their expressive range to the fullest. Caramoor’s Schwab Vocal Rising Stars program is a true oasis in our season, a kind of Zen retreat where words and music take us deep into our art. The result is a concert unlike any other, prepared in a peaceful environment as we watch the coming of spring.

Jazz Aficionado or just Jazz Curious-if you love live music, this Jazz Festival is for you! The day begins with a must- see performance for the whole family by 12-year-old piano sensation Emily Bear and her trio. Next, Emily and jazz master John Beasley lead a very special jam session with an elite group of hand-picked musicians from the exciting and competitive world of New York’s best institutions of music. Trombonist Steve Turre pays tribute, through discussion and performance, to departed jazz trombone legend JJ Johnson, John Beasley presents a fabulous set of the music of Thelonious Monk, and Pianist Renee Rosnes offers a robust conversation about and performance of the enduring music of tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson. After an hour-long dinner break, Arturo O’Farrill and his Grammy® award winning Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra will bring the energy and full sonority of Sonidos Latinos back to the Caramoor Jazz Festival to close out the day.

What could be better than spending a relaxing afternoon with friends while enjoying a scrumptious formal tea in a charming and elegant setting, on a magnificent estate?

The tea is preceded at 2:00pm by a docent-led tour of the Rosen House, a Mediterranean–style villa and its priceless collection, including entire rooms from European villas and palaces.
