I frequently go to Caramoor for music concerts, both during the summer and winter. Some concerts are held in an outside tent (the Venetian Theater), the Sunken Garden, open air in the "Friends Field", others in intimate quarters or in the Spanish courtyard. They often...More

The house is intriguing, with many of the rooms and their furnishings taken from Italian castles and chateaus and built into the house. Quite incredible. The gardens are lovely as well and the concerts can be exceptional, with a choice of venues to suit the...More

A beautiful setting for beautiful music, set in the woods a very serene venue capable of handling many patrons at a time. Get your tickets early as most performances sell out.

We always picnic before the evening concerts in the summer. The grounds are beautiful -- especially the main garden. During the rest of the year we attend chamber music concerts indoors in the Rosen House. The surroundings are as beautiful as the music.
