With over 40 performances featuring rising stars and award-winning artists spanning various genres such as classical, folk, Broadway, jazz, and contemporary music, Caramoor is the place to be for live music enthusiasts.

Originally the country estate of banker and arts patron Walter T. Rosen and his wife Lucie Bigelow Rosen, whose claim to fame was being a prominent electronic musician, Caramoor boasts an 80-acre property with five venues that have become synonymous with hosting top-notch musical performances in the region.

Additionally, the American Roots Music Festival on June 29 and the Jazz Festival on July 27 promise immersive experiences into American music genres, headlined by renowned artists like Madison Cunningham and Matthew Whitaker.

The venue will also host large-scale movement-centered events like a production of Purcell’s “The Fairy Queen” on July 20 and a performance by the Mark Morris Dance Group on August 1.
