Christine Ebersole


The London-based period-instrument ensemble makes its Caramoor debut in a rare area appearance. The English Concert performs Baroque and Classical repertoire with the passion, sophistication and technical mastery established at its creation in 1972.

“Through it all, Bicket and The English Concert were nothing short of brilliant. Sporting perfectly tight ensemble, spacious and ringing tone, a variety of colors, gleaming strings and clean, forceful brass, they are the model of a period chamber orchestra in every sense.” — New York Classical Review

Molsky’s Mountain Drifters brings tradition steeped in possibility. The grace and wisdom of longtime fiddle player and multi-instrumentalist Bruce Molsky, described as “an absolute master” (No Depression) melds with the electricity of guitarist Stash Wyslouch, “a brilliant and free-thinking mind” (Chris Eldridge, Punch Brothers), and banjo player Allison de Groot’s “exquisite tone, timing, and taste” (Tony Trishka) to bring new ideas to old music. Hear the satisfying blend of these distinct yet harmonious musicians bring the folk tradition to the intimate Music Room.

“They are a force to be reckoned with and are creating some of the most soul-stirring music out there today… It is a rarity to hear music that lacks ego and puts soulfulness and a respect for tradition at the forefront. Bruce is simply one of the greatest musicians there is, period.” — Sarah Jarosz

Hot Tuna owes its well-honed sound to legendary blues-rock artists Jorma Kaukonen (guitar) and Jack Casady (bass), and their decades of performing, mutual inspiration, and lifelong friendship. Fusing a variety of rock styles, free rhythmic techniques, and a collected timbre of instruments is what has identified this band over their 40+ years of playing. Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and honored with Lifetime Achievement Awards at the 2016 Grammys, Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady are institutions of the rock genre. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to hear them in this intimate space.

“It was mesmerizing to witness how an acoustic bass and guitar alone could create such a massive space for proper improvisational mastery.” — Grateful Web

Afterglow Reception for All Audience Members

French pianist Alexandre Tharaud took a sabbatical year to perfect his interpretation of J.S. Bach’s Goldberg Variations, a set of 30 variations on an original theme that is one of the pinnacles of the keyboard literature. His 2015 recording of this demanding and complex work received widespread acclaim and praise for his unique approach to the masterpiece.

“He conceives the whole piece as a drama that sucks us in and doesn’t let us go, and carefully paints vivid character along the way.” — The Guardian

Due to construction and restoration work in the Rosen House, this performance has been relocated to the Walker Center for the Arts at the Harvey School.

From Fauré to Cole Porter to Jason Robert Brown, join us as we explore the complexity of love through song. Artistic Director Steven Blier selects four young voices and a pianist for a weeklong residency, which includes daily coaching, rehearsals, and workshops, culminating in a public performance to bring these songs to life. Assisted by Michael Barrett, Associate Artistic Director of the New York Festival of Song (NYFOS), and developed in conjunction with NYFOS, this search for love’s meaning will have us pondering from many musical angles.
