The Caramoor Festival, a summer festival that takes place on an estate in Katonah, New York, is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year. The festival was created in 1945 by Walter and Lucie Rosen, the owners of the estate, in honor of their son, who was killed in World War II.
The Orchestra of St. Luke's, which is celebrating its own 30th anniversary, has performed at the festival since 1979, though it did not appear under its own name until 1985.
The gala will include a cocktail reception, a dinner, the presentation of the Gift of Music Award, a performance by countertenor Bejun Mehta with the orchestra, and dancing. Tickets range from $500 to $2,500.
