Symphonies, soloists, quartets, and trios. The legends of today; the stars of tomorrow.

Classical music is the core of Caramoor’s programing, serving as the heart of our founding, an essential component of every music season, and the basis for all of our Mentoring Programs.

Classical at Caramoor is the delicacy of Hélène Grimaud’s final notes of Brahms’ Piano Sonata No. 2 against a backdrop of aqua luminescence. It’s the ferocity of Pablo Heras-Casado’s concert baton as he leads a thunderous Tchaikovsky crescendo. It’s the lonely wail of Joshua Bell’s violin in the expansive Venetian Theater, the charged spontaneity of the Emerson String Quartet, and the youngest music appreciators among us exploring an instrument petting zoo. Classical is Caramoor.

Now over 35 years in the making, Caramoor continues its intimate and enduring partnership with resident Orchestra of St. Luke’s, a powerhouse ensemble bringing preeminent soloists and influential conductors to the Venetian Theater stage each summer.
