Beethoven may have composed only one complete opera, but his contribution to the great tradition of German Lieder was fundamental. Led by Rachelle Jonck, the Bel Canto Young Artists present a program of beloved gems and little-known masterworks from his extensive catalogue of works for piano and voice. Join us on July 21 to warm up your ears for the Fidelio performance that follows on the 31st.

Get a head-start on Independence Day with an evening of patriotic music, delicious picnics on the lawn, stilt-walkers, friends, family, and fireworks! An audience favorite, the 60-piece Westchester Symphonic Winds led by Curt Ebersole returns for an unforgettable performance of works steeped in American heritage. Guest appearances by Broadway heart-throb Ryan Silverman – currently performing with major symphony orchestras in a Frank Sinatra-themed showcase to honor Ol’ Blue Eyes’ 100th birthday – and exceptional euphonist John Palatucci ensure a night of swinging, Sousa-studded fun for the whole family. Plus, what Pops, Patriots & Fireworks celebration at Caramoor would be complete without a performance of Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture?

Due to predicted severe weather, this performance has moved from the Spanish Courtyard to the Venetian Theater.

Fred Hersch, whom Vanity Fair calls “the most arrestingly innovative pianist in jazz over the last decade or so,” gathers artists he admires deeply for what he promises to be “a fun evening of musical dialogue with musicians who share the joy of spontaneity at the highest level.” Grammy-nominated Chris Potter, saxophone, and Kate McGarry, vocals, join Hersch for this inventive night of music-making presented in collaboration with Jazz at Lincoln Center.

Jazz in the Music Room continues this spring with Israeli-born, New York-based clarinetist and saxophonist Anat Cohen and her quartet. Deemed “a woodwind revelation of dark tones and delicious lyricism,” (DownBeat) Cohen synthesizes an array of influences – Afro-Brazilian, Argentinian, Colombian, Afro-Cuban, Klezmer, and more – for uniquely intoxicating performances. With appearances at hubs such as Umbria, SFJAZZ, North Sea Jazz, and Jazz at Lincoln Center, Cohen is reintroducing the world to choro – Brazilian popular music often considered Rio’s answer to the early New Orleans jazz scene – while exploring the jazz canon and revealing luminous compositions of her own. Join us for an eclectic eruption of world jazz inside Caramoor’s intimate Music Room.

An all-audience Afterglow Reception with wine, beer, and nibbles will follow the performance!

“With the clarinet she becomes a singer, a dancer, a poet, a mad scientist, laughing – musically – with the sheer delight of reaching that new place, that new feeling…”

Join us for the 22nd year of Cabaret in the Music Room, a Benefit for Caramoor with three-time Tony Award nominee Marin Mazzie and Emmy-nominated Jason Danieley. Broadway’s on- and off-stage golden couple discovered their romance 14 years ago, as the mythological lovers Dido and Aeneas in Charles L. Mee’s The Trojan Women: A Love Story, and have since appeared together in productions of Next to Normal, Brigadoon, and 110 in the Shade, as well as co-starring in countless cabaret performances. Most recently, Danieley is taking a solo cabaret act on the road: “Romantic Notions,” a deeply moving homage to his beloved.
