Programs at Caramoor this season include chamber music, a Baroque violinist; a guitarist; a ukulele orchestra from Great Britain, jazz, along with performances by several young artists.A couple of our favorite picks include the Ivalas Quartet and the Baroque violinist Rachel Podger.
Podger was the first woman to be awarded the prestigious Royal Academy of Music/Kohn Foundation Bach Prize (in October 2015), Gramophone Artist of the Year 2018, and Ambassador for REMA’s Early Music Day 2020.
On April 30, she performs an all-Bach solo program at Caramoor.
The Ivalas Quartet, dedicated to the celebration of diverse voices, is comprised of violinists Reuben Kebede and Tiani Butts, violist Aimée McAnulty and cellist Pedro Sánchez, and will perform at Caramoor on Sunday, April 16.
Following a performance of George Walker’s Lyric for Strings at Carnegie Hall in January of 2020, they worked in collaboration with Walker’s son to program his String Quartet No. 1, which is included in this April performance. The program is completed by pairings of traditional and contemporary repertoire: quartets from Brahms and Webern.
All concerts will be held in the Rosen House Music Room. For the full event calendar, visit caramoor.org
