How does the Listening Club work?
Moderated by Caramoor Artistic Director, Kathy Schuman, and similar to a traditional book club, listeners will receive Listening Notes from the artist in advance, as well as information on how to purchase or stream the recording, which will then be the topic of the meeting.
At each virtual meeting of the Listening Club, participants will be part of a live video discussion with the artist, who will take a deep dive into the music and answer your questions.
To preserve the intimate and interactive nature of this event, capacity is limited to 20 households.
There are no upcoming Listening Club Meetings at the moment. Check back here for any updates, or sign up for our weekly e-newsletter.
