Located on an 80-acre campus in Katonah, NY, Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit arts center that has been in continuous operation since 1946. It presents approximately 55 live music performances throughout the year in a wide range of genres, culminating in a major summer season starting in June through early August.
