While the Bonnaroos and the Burning Men have made summer festivals a staple of our modern society, classical music summer festivals have been rocking the Western world for centuries. Folks have long known that something about the sweet smells and rich greens of the warmest season open up the heart and the ears to the true potential of the sublime.

And, in the world of the classical music festivals, Tanglewood is in a class by itself.

Many of you have yet to meet Tanglewood and we at Groupmuse are bursting at the seams with excitement and pride that we have the honor of making that acquaintance. Tanglewood is the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

Nestled in the lush hills of the Berkshires, its 210 acres of meadows are pure paradise. A main-stage fits has a lawn fit for 20,000 picnickers. The gorgeous Ozawa Hall for chamber music looks like futuristic barn from the 1870’s. The leading lights in the world of music have graced the grounds - Leonard Bernstein, John Williams, Wynton Marsalis and countless more. The views will bring tears to your eyes. And now, for the first time, they’ve made a huge stack of lawn tickets available us at Groupmuse for a whole weekend.

On the night of Saturday, July 22nd, Emmanuel Ax is backed by the BSO for a performance of Beethoven’s titanic 5th piano concerto and the following Sunday afternoon, the BSO is laying down Tchaikovsky’s second symphony.

The concerts are typically $23 each, but because it’s groupmuse, you’ll get the whole package for $15. Moreover, there is a chamber music concert in the breathtaking Ozawa Hall on Saturday evening as an appetizer.

Beyond that, the Berkshires are a dream beyond dreams - a rare pocket of green where rural beauty meets world class institutions. All within an hour of Tanglewood: Mass MoCA is a true treasure of a modern art museum. The Clark has a collection of masterpieces that oughta be the envy of any big city. The Norman Rockwell Museum has the single largest body of work from that American original. Jacob's Pillow is a revolutionary dance company that offers programming all summer, including our weekend. And then there are the mountains. I could go on.

Anyhow, come with friends! Bring a picnic blanket! And guess what. It’s BYOB. Just like a groupmuse.

Two of our largest communities - Boston and NYC - are equidistant from Tanglewood, so part of what makes this weekend so special is that it marks the first time when two distinct Groupmuse communities can know each other. We’ll have a big patch of lawn for all of us.

Can't wait to see you there!

Logistical information:
- There is a bus from both New York and Boston that drops off a mile from the grounds.
- We also put together a ride-share form for all of those interesting in offering empty car seats/sitting in empty car seats - that’s here.
- Because it's two days of music, you’ll want to find some place to crash. There are a bunch of campsites in the area listed here and this one is particularly beautiful. There are also plenty of AirBnBs in the area and other options as well.
- If you’re interested in splitting an AirBnB with other folks, you can leave a comment suggesting as much below and be sure to include your contact info.

IN CASE THIS WEEKEND GETS RAINED OUT, WE HAVE A RAIN DATE FOR THE FOLLOWING WEEKEND. FINGERS CROSSED THOUGH, AM I RIGHT?

Groupmuse, 7 months ago

Dear Tanglemusers,

The Tangleweekend is nearly upon us! Your tickets for both Saturday and Sunday's show will be waiting for you in Will Call at the main gate. **The gates open at 5.30pm tomorrow** and there's a prelude chamber music concert in the beautiful Ozawa Hall that starts at 6pm. The main show will start at around 8pm. On Sunday, the gates open at noon and the show starts at 2.30. I highly recommend coming early and checking out the glorious grounds.

We'll gather on an area of the lawn called The Kennedy Lawn, right outside the Tent Club. You can ask any Tanglewood Guide on duty where that is. They'll be very friendly -- I know because I was one, 5 summers ago, right before starting Groupmuse! Very excited to return to this magical place and to see you all there!

Don't forget to bring something to sit on if you don't want to sit directly on the grass, perhaps some picnic goods to munch on, and a bottle of wine if you so desire!

If you have any questions or issues you can text me or call me at (617) 909 9965.

All best,
Sam from Groupmuse
