Caramoor is not only one of the premier music venues in our area, it is truly a local treasure. You may have the impression Caramoor only features string quartets and classical music performances, but it is so much more. This season will feature a wide variety of music genres including jazz, blues, American standards, swing, folk, world music, gospel, opera and classical. There is something for everyone. The creative staff at Caramoor has curated a diverse and exciting season of music.
Opening night is Saturday June 17th featuring the amazing Audra McDonald. The Tony, Emmy and Grammy award winner will be at Caramoor’s Venetian Theater performing songs from the Great American Song Book.
Sunday June 18th will feature a fun event with the Hot Jazz Frolic at the Friends Field Tent. The tent will be turned into a 1920s jazz club where you can dance or just sit back and enjoy the music.
A very special performance of Francesca Caccini’s “Alcina” opera will be performed on Sunday June 25th. This opera is unique in that was written by a woman. It should be a very special evening.
Other special performances will be Over the Rainbow, the Songs of Harold Arlen . Broadway performers will be singing from a selection of songs from this legendary song writer on July 8th.
For something completely different, DakhaBrakha a Ukrainian band with roots in folk, punk,rock and hip hop will perform their unique sound on July 14th.
Samara Joy, the phenomenal 23 year old jazz singer will be on Friends Field on August 4th. The Verve Records recording artist has been compared to the legendary Sarah Vaughn and is a must see show.
The next night, 5 time Grammy and two CMA award winner, Mary Chapin Carpenter and her band will rock the stage on August 5th. This music legend is a performance you’ll want to attend .
This is just a sample of the many performances this season at this amazing music venue. Caramoor is special as it matches its performances to its various unique venues within the property. There is the Venetian Theater (main stage), Friends Field, Music Room (indoor), Sunken Garden and the intimate Spanish Courtyard.
