We are thrilled with the announcement from Governor Cuomo’s office that New York State performing arts venues are allowed to open their doors to a limited number of audience members starting April 2. With this official statement, we would like to let you know how our spring and summer seasons will operate, while following current state guidelines.
As planned, our spring season will be livestreamed. Livestream tickets are available for public purchase and are free for Caramoor Members. Beginning April 9, each concert will have a small live audience of invited guests from our community, so that we may further refine our protocols as we prepare to welcome the public for our reduced capacity summer season. Tickets for our spring season in-person audience will not be available for purchase.
We are excited to let you know that we will be announcing our 2021 summer season concert lineup on April 13. This summer’s concerts will be presented at a decreased audience capacity, in compliance with state guidelines. We are looking forward to safely welcoming audiences back to the newly renovated Caramoor campus this summer, so that we can enjoy live music together. Our staff is taking every precaution, and working diligently to make sure health and safety protocols are in place on behalf of our artists, staff, and audience. Please check our website, social media, and future e-newsletters for more information.
Governor Cuomo has announced that starting April 2nd, music venues can reopen with limited capacity, in-person concerts. We are pleased with this shift in policy and are carefully planning a safe and phased reopening.
Our grounds are not open at this time.
While on-site at Caramoor, please note that visitors must maintain 6ft of social distance between anyone outside of their own household. Face coverings are required upon entry, on shared walkways, in restrooms, and when a 6ft distance cannot be maintained. Stay tuned for more information as we are closely following NYS guidelines, and will adjust our upcoming performances and events as recommended.
What Can You Do if an Event is Canceled or You Are Unable to Attend?
For all events (canceled, postponed, or livestreamed), we have expanded our options for guests no longer attending our events:
- Donate your ticket back to Caramoor (we will issue you a donation receipt for tax purposes)
- Exchange your ticket to receive a credit on your account for a future performance
- Refunded back to the original purchase method
Ticket donations for Summer Season events went toward the Caramoor Artist Fund created to compensate artists whose summer Caramoor performances were canceled and not able to be re-scheduled.
Check back here for up-to-date communications on any new information we have.
What Steps Are We Taking?
At this time, we are taking the following steps to ensure the health and safety of our audience, artists, staff, and community:
- Working closely with local health experts and officials in developing and implementing plans that incorporate recommended health and safety guidelines
- Frequent cleaning and disinfecting of all areas and surfaces
