Continuing our newest collaboration with Jazz at Lincoln Center, Jazz at Caramoor offers up the Baltimore born and bred Cyrus Chestnut and his Trio for an intimate night of smooth piano grooves.

Drawing heavily on the gospel tradition, his love for Vince Guaraldi, and his experience as a longtime sideman for jazz legends such as Dizzy Gillespie and Wynton Marsalis, Chestnut’s sensitive key strokes have earned him a faithful following. With skillful versatility, playful showmanship, and universal appeal, the Cyrus Chestnut Trio is sure to sweet talk your senses.

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

“Chestnut is one of jazz’s most convincing anachronisms. His brand of crisp articulation and blues-inflected harmony evokes another era…” — The New York Times

Roots Music in the Music Room is thrilled to introduce you to Billy Strings & Don Julin, an incendiary guitar and mandolin duo from Michigan who channel the sounds of Appalachia with great virtuosity and ferocious attitude.

Their live shows are mesmerizing, with Strings and Julin goading each other into more intense riffs and improvised breaks, pushing harder onto new levels of musicianship, but never straying from mastery of their instruments or their art. Julin, a colleague and friend of Caramoor favorite David Grisman, is known for his wide versatility, powerful picking technique, and remarkable creativity. Strings, a tattooed 22-year-old guitarist, has the voice of an old soul, the air of a gentleman, and blazing super-human picking abilities. You will leave this evening newly energized and buzzing!

Cole Quest and the City Pickers open the evening for Billy & Don.

Our newest String Quartet-in-Residence was introduced to us by way of two of its members, Ayane Kozasa and Karen Ouzounian, alumnae of our Evnin Rising Stars program. Formed in 2012, the Aizuri Quartet is currently in residence at the Curtis Institute of Music and served as resident ensemble of the 2014 Ravinia Festival’s Steans Music Institute.

The Aizuri, who derive their name from “aizuri-e”, the Japanese art of indigo woodblock printing, are committed to performing works throughout the string quartet literature, from the great standard works to innovative, experimental and genre-defying pieces. As members of the close-knit Caramoor family, we are thrilled to be welcoming these women (back) to Caramoor!

Aizuri Quartet / Beethoven / Quartet Op. 59, No. 3

A diarist. A journalist. The most brilliant singer-songwriter of her generation. Suzanne Vega has been called a number of things during her more than three decades of songwriting. A product of the Greenwich Village folk scene of the ’80s, Vega’s poetic depth, vocal purity, and knack for crafting a catchy riff have earned her an eternal spot in the folk-pop canon with songs such as “Tom’s Diner” and “Luka.” With eight highly acclaimed studio albums under her belt, Suzanne Vega brings personal experiences to light with unfailing tact and consistent artistry. Her latest album, Tales from the Realm of the Queen of Pentacles, features artwork with Caramoor’s architectural elements. Hear this neo-folk icon in her second appearance in the intimate Spanish Courtyard.

“…singing without syncopation and with minimal dynamics, [Vega] conveys an inviolable purity of heart tinged with mystery and a faraway melancholy.” – The New York Times

In this colorful and wide-ranging program, The Knights team up with the inimitable cellist Yo-Yo Ma for music that bursts with individual creativity and reaction to fresh insights. For the young Mendelssohn, immersion in the arts and culture of Italy inspired a new symphony. In Federico II, Giovanni Sollima takes inspiration from the 13th-century Holy Roman Emperor who paved the way for the advances of the Renaissance. In Osvaldo Golijov’s Azul (written for Yo-Yo Ma in 2006) the composer combines two perspectives, simultaneously observing the Earth from afar, as if from the heavens, and also plunging into the turbulent depths of the human and earthly experience.
