Intrigues in the salon, the kitchen, the nursery, and the bedroom! Let five emerging artists take you through a mini song cycle for every room in the house, with music by Saint-Saëns, Bernstein, Poulenc, Balfe, Montsalvatge, Bucchino, and many others. Performed on the floor of the Music Room at Caramoor with the audience surrounding the playing area, this concert will bring the listeners close to the singers for a more intimate experience.

We’re taking chamber music on the road!

Caramoor@Waveny is a unique opportunity to discover exceptional artists in a special setting – the charming 19th-century Carriage Barn Arts Center at Waveny Park in New Canaan, CT. Formerly home to the Waveny Chamber Music Society (WCMS) for over thirty years, the Carriage Barn offers divine acoustics and intimate seating – a perfect environment for cozy chamber listening – and has hosted programs by past Quartets-in-Residence the Linden Quartet, the Calidore String Quartet, the Dover Quartet, and Caramoor’s own Edward Arron and Jeewon Park, among others.

Caramoor continues the WCMS’ legacy by presenting our 2015-16 Ernst Stiefel StringQuartet-in-Residence, the Aizuri Quartet.
