Though summer seems a distant vision, it will be here before you know it. So now is the ideal time to make plans—especially when it comes to getting your tickets for Tanglewood.
As the well-known summer residence of the Boston Symphony Orchestra (BSO), Tanglewood has a rich history of providing musical enjoyment to generations of visitors, and many of our B&B guests. The tradition began in 1937, after the Tappan family generously offered their estate, Tanglewood, and surrounding acres as a venue. The concerts were a rousing success and have continued on as a summer institution.
Today, Tanglewood draws more than 350,000 visitors a season, and offers a lineup that includes not only the BSO, but a wide range of musical styles and talents. For those who would like to attend a concert this coming summer, tickets go on sale January 29, 2017. It’s a good idea to buy now, as concerts sell out quickly. Listed below are a few highlights of the upcoming season. For a full schedule and to purchase tickets, you can visit the Tanglewood website.
BSO music director, Andris Nelsons, will conduct ten concerts, including in the opening and closing weekend, with works including Mahler, Mozart, Wagner, Beethoven, and Strauss. The Boston Pops and Keith Lockhart will also be featured during Tanglewood’s opening and ending weekends.
A six-concert series curated by Emanuel Ax will highlight works by Shubert for the summer Ozawa Hall schedule. Titled Schubert’s Summer Journey, it features music from the composer’s final year.
In addition, the 2017 Tanglewood calendar includes concerts by stellar young musicians, the debut of humorist David Sedaris, and special pre-concert activities on Sundays.
