Described as an “excellent soloist” of “great virtuosity” (NY Concert Review), delivering “thrilling” performances (Boston Globe), Venezuelan violinist (and Evnin Rising Star Alumnus) Rubén Rengel is quickly gaining recognition as a remarkably gifted artist. Cuban-American cellist Thomas Mesa has established himself as one of the most charismatic and engaging performers of his generation, and was the winner of the $50,000 First Prize in the 2016 Sphinx Competition. The two join moderator Corinna da Fonseca-Wollheim for a peaceful morning of mindful music. 

Caramoor’s bucolic Sunken Garden provides a fitting setting to clear the mind and nourish the spirit with silence and music. Beginning with a guided meditation and concluding with a group discussion, Beginner’s Ear offers a soul-nourishing new way of hearing music and builds community through the shared experience of silence and sound.

Please bring your own blanket or seating. In the event of rain, this event will be moved into the Pavilion Tent.
