The season starts on June 28th and includes more than 100 performances of live radio shows, orchestras, as well as popular artists like James Taylor, Yo-Yo Ma and first-timer Jason Alexander. Mark Volpe is the BSO’s managing director.
“You have people at Tanglewood who've been coming to concerts for 50, 60 years who are hyper-sophisticated and yet people getting exposed to classical music or an orchestra for the first time at Tanglewood,” Volpe said. “It’s a little bit of a challenge to program for a variety of tastes, but ultimately that’s the joy of Tanglewood. You have different types of people coming, congregating and celebrating music and nature out in a place that's unique in the world."
The season runs till the end of August. Tickets go on sale January 26th.
