Ralph Gardner Jr: Dodging The Raindrops At Tanglewood

Jul 15, 2017

I love Tanglewood. The problem is Tanglewood doesn’t love me back.

The Boston Symphony Orchestra’s Tanglewood season broadcasts begin on Friday July 7th at 8PM. Join the BSO as they perform live at their famed summer home in Lenox, MA. Listeners will enjoy the BSO's Friday, Saturday and Sunday concerts.

The warm summer evenings at Tanglewood with the Boston Symphony Orchestra may seem far away after this weekend's snow and cold, but the schedule for next summer is out. For more, we spoke with Mark Volpe, managing director of the BSO, who says the season will begin and end with musical director Andris Nelsons holding the baton.

At the age of 34, Andris Nelsons will lead one of the most respected orchestras in the world. Nelsons, a native of Latvia, who has earned a distinguished reputation in European classical music and opera, has been named the new music director of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, filling the vacancy left by the departure of James Levine, who stepped down for health reasons two years ago. Mark Volpe, the managing director of the BSO, spoke with WAMC's Brian Shields.

The Boston Symphony Orchestra has announced its 2013 schedule for Tanglewood in Lenox, Massachusetts. WAMC’s Alan Chartock spoke with BSO managing director Mark Volpe about what’s on tap for summer, and the state of the orchestra’s search for a new head conductor.
