The home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra dating back to late 1930s, Tanglewood is an esteemed and historic venue located in Lenox, Massachusetts that was founded in 1937 and renovated in 1959.
It is clear that the locale is a magnet for the greatest performing acts up-and-down the Eastern Seaboard. Here is an insider’s glimpse at the 2016 schedule for the establishment that has hosted some of the most talented and well-known classical music acts over the last nine decades.
The unique spot constructed in the hills of Western Massachusetts just a handful of years before the onset of WWII initially intended to host vibrant, top-notch music. In the several years since, it has grown into one of the proudest and most accomplished spots that plays host to a wide array of talents. Many fans in the Boston area have seen amazing things unfold at Tanglewood.
But Tanglewood is clearly primed and ready to host any fan from any corner of Earth, and also poised to break attendance records in 2016 and 2017. A look at the upcoming schedule will help equip fans with as much important info as they can digest.
Tanglewood Schedule 2016
18 of June’s 30 days will feature a live event. Everything from Raiders of the Lost Ark Live with the Boston Pops to a Golden Age of Broadway show to Jackson Browne will take place. The following months are even more solidly booked. The highlight of June is arguably a Friday performance on the 17th starring country music legend Dolly Parton. The ageless beauty and incredible talent continues to show off her talents in front of adoring audiences, and this one will be one of the biggest shows the country diva plays in all of 2016.
July is every bit as hot as normal, featuring an abundance of performances that fill the calendar. Friday, July 1 will be a busy day, featuring the TMC String Quartet Marathon, beginning at 10 AM and 2:30 PM. At 8 o’clock in the evening, the Boston Pops Orchestra starring conductor Keith Lockhart will entertain. Special guests abound during the BSO’s 2016 season, including creative dynamo Seth McFarlane, who will join the fun on the evening of July 10.
Well-orchestrated mornings, afternoons and evenings such as this are a testament to the impressive capabilities of the structure and everyone that helps pull off the impressive and quick transitions that allow three separate shows on any given day.
As of now, the fall and winter schedule is spotty. This is likely because big-time events at this extremely popular venue are only revealed a few months in advance. In a place where nature and musical greatness converge, hundreds of thousands of fans have been entertained and gifted with long-lasting memories. Tanglewood is a magical place by all accounts, and TicketProcess.com is happy to provide fans with a chance to access it.
