Dancing at Dusk is a Caramoor summer tradition, enjoyed by families and those who simply like to experience joyful sounds. Held on the spacious lawn of Friends Field, D@D offers you a chance to learn about and dance to music from around the globe.

After their performance on America’s Got Talent, the New York-based Hammerstep was told “your skill level is so high you’re impossible to ignore.” Founded by two-time solo World Champion Irish dancer Garrett Coleman and former lead of Riverdance Jason Oremus, Hammerstep is forever changing the face of dance. Hammerstep’s raw and percussion-driven approach draws from various historically rebellious dance forms, including Irish, tap, hip hop, African stepping, and more.

D@D features free arts and crafts activities, plenty of space for kids to run around, spacious picnic lawns, free and convenient parking, and real restrooms (with baby changing areas).

Today’s Dancing at Dusk concert featuring Africa Womba with Wassa Pan Afrika Ensemble will be moved from Friends’ Field into the Reception Tent in response to the weather forecast  for thunder and lightning storms. Unfortunately, this switch in location greatly reduces the number of people we can accommodate. Since capacity has been reached by our advance sale, this concert is SOLD OUT. There will be no tickets available at the door.

The program and fun will go on  as planned while keeping everyone safe and dry.

We will watch the weather forecast until noon today and if it  improves we will make an announcement at that time.

Chamber Talk host Max Mandel says that he has “grown up as a musician” at Caramoor. He shares this experience with many of the alumni of the Evning Rising Stars program. In this talk Max will describe the unique friendships and collaborations that develop in a mentorship program where emerging artists come to learn, grow, and perform together. Rising Stars Alumni will be present to join Max in the discussion and share insights and anecdotes about their summer concert and one of Mendelssohn’s thrilling viola quintets.

Chamber Talk is a new three-part series hosted by Evnin Rising Star alum and viola player, Max Mandel. The goal of this program is to give audiences a deeper understanding of, and connection to, Caramoor’s Music Room events and its artists. Each talk will follow a similar pattern of lecture, concert, and conversation. This salon-style performance format allows audiences an opportunity to go in-depth and get up-close to the most personal aspects of music—the way it’s meant to be enjoyed.

Gone are the days when Jascha Heifitz would refuse to play second fiddle to anyone. These days, soloists such as Caramoor’s own Festival Artist-in-Residence, Alisa Weilerstein, blur the lines between chamber musician and soloist. With a special video message from Alisa, this talk will focus on her Residency at Caramoor and her collaboration with former Ernst Stiefel String Quartet-in-Residence, the Ariel Quartet. Also, we’ll discuss the “desert island” chamber piece, Schubert’s glorious Quintet with two cellos, which they will perform together during the Summer Music Festival.
