I've loved Tanglewood since I was a child ....................... to sit out on the lawn with a delicious picnic, listening to wonderful music is one of life's great pleasures. I've been there for all sorts of concerts: the Boston Symphony, but also Peter, Paul and Mary, A Prairie Home Companion, James Taylor, etc. The tickets have become a bit pricey for the BSO so we often find ourselves attending a Saturday rehearsal rather than an evening concert.

I ***love*** Tanglewood. Tanglewood is the definition of summer for me and our family. There is nothing better than bringing a picnic meal, listening to a concert at this lovely setting with friends and family.

The best Summer concert venue, probably, in the world

Music is very good but music selections are the "safe bet" yearly standards. A couple of excellent selection but "special prices" (higher) can be anticipated. Expensive seating, bugs and birds inside shed, uncomfortable seats, lawn is most often distracting due to people with families eating, drinking, sleeping and possibility of rain in Berkshires. Gets cool and lawn gets wet in evening. Bathroom facilities are good. Parking can be a problem, go early for good parking. large police presence, police state feeling, parking attendants surly. Pretty good people watching. Much better bet is Bard College or Berkshire Coral in Sheffield, MA.
