Our 2017 summer season opens with “beautiful song”—both literally and figuratively—in the first of five concerts this season celebrating the 20th anniversary of Bel Canto at Caramoor. Artist-in-Residence soprano Angela Meade is featured in an evening of Italian opera including popular overtures, classic arias, rousing choral numbers, and heartbreaking duets.

This evening kicks off with our annual benefit gala. Learn more about the gala and the After Dark party following the concert.

“Bel Canto at Caramoor is a delight for audiences and singers alike, because, as Vivica Genaux, who has sung there several times, said, “at Caramoor it’s all about the music.”

What Will Crutchfield has achieved gives us, as the audience, a viable grounding in the technique and style of Bel Canto.” – New York Arts

The final concert celebrating Bel Canto at Caramoor features a choral gem from one of opera’s greatest composers. Rossini surprised the musical world by retiring from the theater when he was only 32 years of age; he surprised it again by emerging at more than twice that age to compose “the last mortal Sin of my Old Age,” his Petite messe solennelle (1864). Alternately jubilant and haunted, antique and modern, the mass contains some of the composer’s most beautiful and expressive music. Caramoor presents the piece in its original chamber instrumentation for two pianos and harmonium.

“Dear God, here it is finished, this poor little Mass. Little skill, but a bit of heart – there you have it. Be blessed, then, and grant me Heaven!” — Gioachino Rossini, from title page of the manuscript
