Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts was established by Walter and Lucie Rosen to operate their estate in perpetuity as a home for art, music, and inspiration. As collectors and music lovers, the Rosens were touched by the pleasure their friends took while visiting Caramoor, and they decided to leave their home as a legacy for all to enjoy. It is thanks to the vision and energy of this inspirational couple that we enjoy Caramoor today.
The Encore Society was more recently formed to recognize dedicated individuals and couples who have indicated their intent to include Caramoor in their estate planning. We thank the members of the Encore Society in a number of ways, including: public listings in donor rosters, invitations to special events and receptions, and the ability to memorialize donors or loved ones through specific naming or endowment opportunities.
