We are thrilled to be able to offer you the opportunity to tour The Rosen House – virtually! While we eagerly await the day when we can welcome everyone in person, today we would like to introduce you to Lucie and Walter Rosen, and the home they built for music.
Our Caramoor staff will be your virtual guides as you tour throughout these historic rooms. Filled with examples of fine and decorative Asian and Renaissance art, the House offers a number of treasures, including complete 18th-century rooms, originally from private villas and chateaux in Italy, France, and England. Lucie Rosen narrates the tour for us, just as she did many years ago when the Rosens would open their home to anyone interested in seeing their magnificent collection.
The Caramoor experience was born in the House and continues to this day. As great lovers of music, the Rosens filled their home with friends and neighbors for intimate musical performances, lavish parties, and musical soirées. In 1946, as those performances and parties gained momentum, the House was opened to the public, spawning the early years of what became Caramoor’s year-round music programming. While we are currently not allowing in person tours of the house, we are looking forward to welcoming you in person! In the meantime, feel free to virtually explore the many magnificent rooms of The Rosen House with various members of the Caramoor Staff.
