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.
