Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts is a former estate near Katonah, New York United States, that has since become a venue for classical music performances and an art museum. Both are legacies of the house's original owners, Walter and Lucie Rosen. The Caramoor International Music Festival is held there every summer. It also runs educational programs, and can be rented for events such as weddings.
The Rosens built the estate gradually during the 1930s, its main house an imitation Italian villa. Many pieces of the buildings were imported from various European countries. The informal musical performances they hosted evolved into the beginning of Caramoor's current offerings in 1945, and their collection of Renaissance-era and Chinese artworks, some rare, is on display throughout the estate. Lucie Rosen later donated it to the private organization that runs it today. In 2001 it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

“The arts are not just instantaneous pleasureif you dont like it, the artist is wrong. I belong to the generation which says if you dont like it, you dont understand and you ought to find out.”
—John Drummond (b. 1934)
“Ive come close to matching the feeling of that night in 1944 in music, when I first heard Diz and Bird, but Ive never got there.... Im always looking for it, listening and feeling for it, though, trying to always feel it in and through the music I play every day.”
—Miles Davis (19261991)
“Louise Bryant: Im sorry if you dont believe in mutual independence and free love and respect.
Eugene ONeill: Dont give me a lot of parlor socialism that you learned in the village. If you were mine, I wouldnt share you with anybody or anything. It would be just you and me. Youd be at the center of it all. You know it would feel a lot more like love than being left alone with your work.”
—Warren Beatty (b. 1937)
