Due to forecasted weather in the area, including a likelihood of rain and chance of thunderstorms, this concert will be moved into the fully covered Venetian Theater. This is a large tent with open sides and seating already provided. You will no longer need to bring your own seating to this concert.
With her newly released Verve Records debut, Linger Awhile, 23-year-old and two-time Grammy-winner Samara Joy makes her case to join the likes of Sarah, Ella, and Billie as the next mononymous jazz singing sensation recorded by the venerable label. Her rich and velvety yet precociously refined voice has perhaps cemented her status as the first Gen-Z jazz singing star. Joy’s Caramoor debut will introduce the audience to a slew of classic standards several times older than she is through her timeless, irresistible sound.
Summer Season Shuttle / Take the FREE shuttle from Metro North’s Katonah train station to and from Caramoor! The shuttle runs before and after every summer afternoon and evening concert. No need to RSVP to get on the shuttle, it will be there when you arrive (in the parking lot side of the station). And if it’s not there, that means that it just left and will be back in 5-10 minutes!
“It’s spooky; she sounds and tells a story like an elder. But I think what I love most about her — and I pray that the challenges in life don’t change this — is she’s always positive. She’s got such a fun, positive spirit.”
– celebrated bassist and composer Christian McBride via The New York Times
With her Grammy Award-Winning Verve Records debut, Linger Awhile, 23-year-old Bronx native Samara Joy makes her case to join the likes of Sarah, Ella, and Billie as the next mononymous jazz singing sensation recorded by the venerable label. Her voice, rich and velvety yet precociously refined, has already earned her fans like Anita Baker and Regina King, appearances on The TODAY Show, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, CBS Mornings, MSNBC, Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, Drew Barrymore, etc., in addition to millions of likes on TikTok — cementing her status as perhaps the first Gen Z jazz singing star. On Linger Awhile, Joy introduces that massive audience to a slew of classic standards several times older than she is through her timeless, irresistible sound. The New York Times praised the “silky-voiced rising star” for “helping jazz take a youthful turn” while NPR’s All Things Considered named her a “classic jazz singer from a new generation.” In February 2023, Joy took home two GRAMMYs — Best Jazz Vocal Album and the auspicious Best New Artist award.
