Caramoor … credits him with raising its profile to become one of the country’s most important summer music festivals…. Prior to Caramoor he ran operations for the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, Caramoor’s resident ensemble. Among his initiatives at Caramoor: the annual jazz festival; the annual commissioning of a new work for the string quartet library; the annual Independence Day ‘Pops, Patriots and Fireworks’ concert; ‘In the Garden of Sonic Delights,’ an exhibition of 15 commissioned, site-specific sound-art installations; the Diane Moss Education Center; renovating the Venetian Theater; mentoring the young artist programs, such as Evnin Rising Stars and the Ernst Stiefel String Quartet-in-Residence, and much more. Said CEO Jeffrey Haydon: ‘Paul’s dedication to Caramoor is an inspiration to us all…. We are grateful for his wisdom, friendship, and unswerving championing of Caramoor.’ ”
