Suzanne Vega [link]
Caramoor, Katonah

A diarist. A journalist. The most brilliant singer-songwriter of her generation. Suzanne Vega has been called a number of things during her more than three decades of songwriting. A product of the Greenwich Village folk scene of the ’80s, Vega’s poetic depth, vocal purity, and knack for crafting a catchy riff have earned her an eternal spot in the folk-pop canon with songs such as “Tom’s Diner” and “Luka”. With eight highly acclaimed studio albums under her belt – art for the latest, Tales from the Realm of the Queen of Pentacles (2014), features architectural elements from Caramoor – Suzanne Vega brings personal experiences to light with unfailing tact and consistent artistry. Hear this neo-folk icon in her second appearance in the intimate Spanish Courtyard.

Alamo Drafthouse 2015 Summer Kids Camp Lineup
The heat-beating, doldrums-busting series returns with a lineup of fun family favorites and a new choose-your-own-ticket price option with proceeds benefiting local charities...
Alamo Drafthouse is happy to announce the return of its annual Summer Kids Camp screenings – now 100% better, stronger and fun-er! Programmed specifically for families, Summer Kids Camp is affordable fun for all with a mix of new favorites and classic kid-friendly films.
New for this year is a "choose-your-own-ticket price" model ranging from $1 to $3 per person – you choose the amount! This new model not only allows for tickets to be purchased online, in advance with reserved seating – parents, take a moment to rejoice here – but also 100% of ticket sales will be donated to local nonprofits helping families. Now, families can have summer fun while also helping their communities.
"Kids Camp reaches almost 100,000 kids and parents during the summer, providing affordable and fun movies for everyone," says Director of Family & Community Engagement Amy Averett. "We are excited to grow this program to support great local nonprofits through ticket sales donations."
In Yonkers, the first local nonprofit that will receive a donation will be Groundwork Hudson Valley.
"We're also excited about the variety of titles being offered this summer," says Averett. From classics like MARY POPPINS, to literary inspirations like CHARLOTTE'S WEB, there is a wide range of choices for families. Also, we know that summer's hottest new releases like JURASSIC WORLD may not work for our younger guests. Kids Camp provides an age-appropriate alternative with THE LAND BEFORE TIME."
The line-up will be as follows:
Mary Poppins - 7/27-7/30
How To Train Your Dragon 2 - 8/3-8/6
Kung Fu Panda 2 - 8/17-8/20
The Parent Trap - 8/24-8/27
Chicken Run - 8/31-9/3

A new season, a new way to visit Stone Barns Center! [link]
Stone Barns Center is changing the way people can visit the farm and introducing new activities, tours and demonstrations designed to engage each and every visitor in a whole-farm experience! The farm is a special place. On beautiful weekend days we've seen a volume of visitors we cannot accommodate. Such numbers have a negative impact on our farming operation and limit the educational opportunities for visitors. By moving to ticketed weekend admission we are better able to deliver a quality experience to all visitors and conserve this land. Weekend tickets are now available for purchase at stonebarnscenter.org at $20/adult and $10/children. Children under 2 are free and there is no longer a parking fee. Stone Barns Center members do not need to reserve tickets ahead of time. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday admission is FREE and there is no parking fee. On a Saturday or Sunday visit to Stone Barns Center, you may participate in a variety of seasonal, hands-on activities and drop-in tours—all included with your one-day admission ticket. Purchase your admission tickets at stonebarnscenter.org up to 60 days prior to your visit. Except as noted below, activities are designed for both adults and children.
