Tanglewood...A Musical Haven
The Tanglewood Music Center in Lenox, Massachusetts, the summer home of the revered Boston Symphony Orchestra since 1934, is the setting for a wide variety of outstanding musical performances every year. Each season offers a vast quantity of music, all presented with a regard for artistic excellence that makes the festival unique. Today, Tanglewood draws over 350,000 visitors annually.
The property, consisting of 210 acres, features the famous Koussevitzky Music Shed with the surrounding great lawn seating thousands and the modern Seiji Ozawa Hall. The lawn is a popular destination for many summer visitors and Tanglewood concert-goers are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, blankets, food and wine to accompany the music. Inside the shed, patrons of the arts can sit and enjoy the music on a more intimate level. Taking a stroll through the grounds offers beautiful landscaping, spectacular views of the Berkshires and historic homes.
