Tanglewood on Parade - Director of the Tanglewood Music Center, Ellen Highstein

One of the largest parts of Tanglewood’s 75-year legacy comes from the hard work and awesome talent on display by the Tanglewood Fellows. As you walk along Tanglewood’s meandering paths, it’s easy to miss a series of small wooden shacks nestled amongst the pine trees. But, it is within those structures the Tanglewood Music Center Fellows hone their craft and learn from the masters. Today we welcome back our good friend Ellen Highstein – the Director of the Tanglewood Music Center – to share the TMC’s participation in tonight’s Tanglewood on Parade events and wrapping up the season.
