On Saturday, June 23, Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts opens its 67th annual Summer Music Festival with an evening of Mendelssohn. Celebrated violinist Gil Shaham opens the program with Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto in E minor, Op. 64.

The Orchestra of St. Luke's, conducted by Roberto Abbado, will continue the evening with selections from Mendelssohn's masterful incidental music to A Midsummer Night's Dream. Broadway luminary Bebe Neuwirth will read excerpts of Shakespeare's play to contextualize the symphonic piece.

 

"I am so pleased to present this work on the grounds of Caramoor," says Michael Barrett. "The setting here is perfect for a piece where strange and supernatural things could occur. Caramoor is the perfect summer place for the suspension of our disbelief, and the full participation of the imagination. The beauty of Shakespeare's poetry is certainly an additional delight for what I think will be a perfect evening: nature, music, poetry, and a feeling of youthful wonder permeating it all."
