Soundtracks of the season

The holiday season at Caramoor in Katonah hits its stride with a livestreamed performance on Saturday, Dec. 12 at 5p.m. by TENET Vocal Artists, led by artistic director Jolle Greenleaf, continuing the series of concerts from the Music Room that The New York Times calls “adventurous and excellent.” Based on the Anglican tradition of Lessons and Carols, TENET’s vocal soloists join with lutenist Hank Heijink to perform traditional carols alongside works by Warlock, Howells, Parry and Vaughan Williams.

Then, starting on Monday, Dec. 14, Caramoor will also offer its first “Virtual Holiday Tea Musicale” this season, with a streamed performance by soprano Christine Taylor Price, baritone Gregory Feldmann and pianist Nathaniel LaNasa, as well as a self-paced virtual tour of the Rosen House included with each ticket. 

The concert is available to view at any time from Dec. 14 through Jan. 1. There will also be three special viewing experiences on Dec. 18, 19 and 20. At 1 p.m. on each of these days, the chat box will be open on the concert video so that viewers can interact with Roanne Wilcox, the director of the Rosen House and ask questions about the house.

Tickets for both events are $10; free for Caramoor members. For more, visit caramoor.org.

Meanwhile, you can come for the shopping and stay for the music at The SoNo Collection. The Norwalk mall features live music for holiday visitors to shop by on the Sundays before Christmas from noon to 3 p.m. on the first floor level. This Sunday, Dec. 13, it’s harpist Wendy Kerner (noon to 1:30 p.m.), followed by a string trio with Emanouil Manolov, Suzanne Corey-Sahlin and Gunnar Sahlin (until 3 p.m.).

On Dec. 20, violinist Manolov joins pianist Benjamin Steinhardt.
