Where

This historic estate in Katonah, New York was purchased by Walter and Lucie Rosen in 1928 with plans to build a Venetian style mansion, but after the Great Depression happened, it led to them remodeling the property’s farm buildings into their estate. Walter Rosen was an avid fine arts collector and throughout the estate, his collections can be enjoyed. Both the Rosens were accomplished musicians, with Lucie being a famous Theremin player. At their estate, the Rosens hosted concerts and recitals and after their son’s death in WWII, they chose to preserve Caramoor’s musical heritage in memory of son by turning the estate into a foundation for music and art. Today it serves as a live music venue for symphonic, opera, chamber, American roots, and jazz, performances.
