Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts today announced plans for its 2022 summer season. The Katonah nonprofit cultural center is known for presenting adventurous music from across the genre spectrum. Caramoor’s leaders said that the 2022 lineup will celebrate music’s power to unite people, heal divisions, and inspire discovery.

“This summer is one of the most dynamic in our history! Our incredible lineup of artists and repertoire includes voices from an array of backgrounds, eras, and lived experiences, reflecting a broad diversity of audiences from our stages,” said Edward J. Lewis III, Caramoor’s president and chief executive officer. “We’re thrilled to present a season of such powerful world-class music experiences in our picturesque outdoor venues."

Caramoor’s 2022 summer season kicks off Saturday, June 18 with an Opening Night Gala featuring cellist Yo-Yo Ma and his frequent collaborators The Knights, the Grammy-nominated orchestral collective.

Throughout the summer, Caramoor will feature opera, orchestras, chamber music and recitals, vocal music, jazz and Broadway performances, American roots and world music, post-concert talk backs, free community events and a Sound Art exhibition.

Kathy Schuman, Caramoor’s artistic director, said, ‘this summer I’m particularly excited to be highlighting many underrepresented artists in the classical realm who so deserve greater recognition. I hope that their amplified voices and music will be as great a discovery to audiences as they have been to me.”
