Event Description - NY Metro - Picnic and Jazz at Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts
This event is sold out. Please contact Lauren Henry at to be added to the waiting list.
Venture out of New York City this summer, and join fellow alumni at Caramoor for a family friendly afternoon of fun at the 20th Anniversary Caramoor Jazz Festival. Enjoy the music, picnic with family and friends, sip wine, and explore the Rosen estate in lovely Westchester County, NY.

Since 1993 the Caramoor Jazz Festival has presented hundreds of the finest jazz musicians from superstars to emerging artists, from big bands to solo pianists, in an eclectic mix featuring unique combinations of artists in true Festival style. At twenty, we pose the question “What is the Universal Golden Key for jazz musicians?”  It is experiencing and expressing - in the present moment - an urgent, spiritual purpose and freedom, and sharing it with you, the appreciative listener. More details about the Caramoor Jazz Festival can be found on their website.  Sunday's concerts will feature Mingus Big Band, James Carter Organ Trio, Jason Marsalis Vibes Quartet, Lionel Loueke Trio, and Elio Villafranca & the Jass Syncompators.

Tickets are limited, so register now!  Please note that registration is required.
Non-drivers can purchase round-trip tickets between New York City and Caramoor via the Caramoor Caravan.  Ample parking is available for drivers.  

$20 per person for concert tickets. 
Bring a picnic or purchase food on-site.  Alcohol is permitted on premise.
