Caramoor will celebrate the kick-off of its 2017 summer season with its annual benefit event on Saturday, June 17. The Center for Music and the Arts’ biggest and grandest night of the year includes a pre-performance cocktail reception and an elegant Italian dinner al fresco, premium concert seating in the Venetian Theater for the concert, “Celebrating 20 Years of Bel Canto at Caramoor with A Night of Italian Opera,” and the After Dark post-performance party with desserts and dancing.
While we love to attend for the fine food by Great Performances, sublime wine, social networking, and fascinating people-watching opportunities, the highlight is irrefutably the concert. With “Bel Canto” or “Beautiful Song” as the evening’s theme, you can’t go wrong. Artist-in-Residence soprano Angela Meade will be featured in an evening of Italian opera, including popular overtures, classic arias, rousing choral numbers, and heartbreaking duets.
If you haven’t been to Caramoor’s annual opening night, you simply must order a ticket, dust off your dancing shoes, and dress for an evening of upscale fun. We hope to see you there.
