Join us for a glamorous night of dinner, drinks, and dancing as the Rosen House channels the vibrancy of Paris in the 1920s! Experience the glitz of The Jazz Age in the stunning Music Room while supporting a great cause. Festive 1920s attire is encouraged!

A perfect day out for Grandma, Grandpa, and the little ones! Take a brief I Spy the Rosen House tour and discover some of the treasures Caramoor’s founders Walter and Lucie Rosen collected.  After the tour, join us for a performance of Poulenc’s Babar in the Music Room with pianist Jeewon Park and narrator Benjamin Luxon. To conclude a lovely afternoon, enjoy a fête (or as we say “celebration”) in the charming Summer Dining Room with mini sandwiches and treats galore.

Based on the popular illustrated children’s book, Babar tells the story of a sweet baby elephant who overcomes early hardships to become King of the Elephants and live happily with his cousins in the forest. Poulenc’s score, completed in 1945 for piano and narrator, written for the young children of Poulenc’s cousins, is full of beautifully expressive self-contained passages such as the Lullaby, Reverie, Nocturne, and others.
