Chris Thile’s Solo Concert at Caramoor To Be Streamed on Sunday, July 19

This weekend, Caramoor launches Concerts on the Lawn, a new series of live, public, open-air concerts for small, socially distancing audiences. Each celebrating a different genre, these four events will take place on Friends Fields, where beloved mandolinist Chris Thile, of Live From Here fame, kicks off the series on July 18. The performance will be streamed the following day, on Sunday, July 19 (rain date: Monday, July 20) at 7pm.

The capacity of the audience for this concert is especially limited, due to health and safety guidance. Tickets for the remaining three concerts in the series will each be placed on sale a few days before, to keep up with the latest government guidelines.

Concerts on the Lawn forms part of Caramoor’s flexible Summer 20/2.0 program, which started earlier this month with the first of a series of livestreamed on-site performances. With more than 80 acres of woodlands, gardens and outdoor performance space, Caramoor is ideally placed to participate responsibly in New York’s re-opening process and find creative new ways of inspiring audiences safely this summer.

Concerts on the Lawn take place on Saturdays, from July 18–Aug 8, with rain dates on the following Sundays. All activities will be subject to current government health and safety guidelines, as well as re-confirmation in the days before.

Chris Thile delayed stream:
