Tanglewood
Tanglewood, one of the country’s premier summer music festivals and the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra since 1937, is located in the Berkshire Hills of Lenox and Stockbridge, Massachusetts.

Tanglewood returns to its full season schedule this summer, presenting eight weekends of Boston Symphony Orchestra programs, alongside Boston Pops concerts, a robust Popular Artist series, and performances by the Fellows of the Tanglewood Music Center, the orchestra’s summer music academy and a destination for many of the most talented young musicians of our time. A highlight of the summer is the reopening of Ozawa Hall and the Linde Center for Music and Learning (both closed in summer 2020 and 2021), where smaller audiences take in recitals, chamber music, and guest ensemble performances, as well as the special events of the Tanglewood Learning Institute, focused on innovative programs and audience participation. The Linde Center, the festival’s newest performance facility, opened to popular and critical acclaim in 2019. Click here for further information about Tanglewood.
