Program areas at Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts

Mentoring and Arts-In-Education - See Schedule OThe 81-acre Caramoor campus is comprised of four primary buildings today known as the Rosen House, the Administration Building, the Gifford Residence, and the Diane Moss Education Center as well as ancillary buildings and landscape features, gardens, lawns, and woodland areas. A central focus of the campus is the Venetian Theater, a tented, 1,500-seat venue.Forty-five acres of the campus is deer-fenced and open to the visiting public, including the Sunken Garden, established in 1912; a Mediterranean Revival pavilion; an alley of cedar trees; and a number of gardens designed in the 1930s by landscape architect and Katonah resident Robert Ludlow Fowler, Jr.
Rosen House, Gardens and Estate - See Schedule OThe Rosen House is a Mediterranean revival villa at the center of the Caramoor campus. In recognition of the unsurpassed quality and great quantity of European period rooms incorporated in the house, Caramoor was recognized as nationally significant on the National Register of Historic Places in 2011. Built in the 1930s, the Rosen House now serves as a concert venue, museum, and archive. In 2021, we updated and modified many of the rooms in the southwest wing of the Rosen House. We added signage, updated lighting and displays, and relocated some of the art to help our visitors have a sense of the foundations of Caramoor and of the Rosens as patrons of music and the arts. We also redesigned some of the rooms in the New Wing, the area that was added by the Rosens' daughter, Anne Bigelow Rosen, in 1968, after Lucie Rosen died. These rooms now display Lucie's theremin, along with signage describing Lucie's influence and support for the electronic instrument.
