Festival Description

The Fall Festival features nationally recognized performers that make for stellar performances each evening. Another wonderful addition to the repertoir of Caramoor events, the Fall Festival celebrated its inaugural edition in 2009. The setting of the beautifully restored buildings and grounds of Caramoor offer a special venue — a jewel from the Roaring 20s.

Festival Story:

Caramoor is a performing arts center located on a unique 90-acre setting of Italianate architecture and gardens in Westchester County, NY. It enriches the lives of its audiences through innovative and diverse musical performances of the highest quality. Its mission also includes mentoring young professional musicians and providing educational programs for young children centered around music. It is often described as “a Garden of Great Music” where audiences are invited to come early, explore the beautiful grounds, enjoy a pre-concert picnic, and discover beautiful music in the relaxed settings of the Venetian Theater, Spanish Courtyard, Music Room of the Rosen House, and the magnificent gardens.

Fall Festival concerts take place in three venues. Two outdoor theaters: the 1714-seat, acoustically superb Venetian Theater and the more intimate, romantic Spanish Courtyard and the intimate Music Room in the Rosen House. The historic Rosen House, built in the 1930’s, and its Music Room are “the heart of Caramoor.” Upon its completion in 1939, the Rosens began to present private concerts in the Music Room. Today it is used for all Indoors concerts and for arts-in-educations programs for students. Tours of the Rosen House by the general public are currently on hiatus as Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts has embarked on a comprehensive planning project to restructure the programs and usage of the historic Rosen House. It is Caramoor’s intention to complete this process during the next few years.

Caramoor’s gardens are also well worth the visit and include nine unique perennial gardens. Among them are a Sense Circle for the visually handicapped, a Butterfly Garden, Tapestry Hedge, and Iris and Peony Garden, which may be enjoyed on one’s own or seen on a guided tour. With its unique heritage, Caramoor is a place where Indian Summer days and nights are shared and enjoyed by thousands.
