After a spectacular 75th anniversary season in 2012, Tanglewood promises not to disappoint in 2013. This year Tanglewood will offer music lovers a variety of performances including Boston Symphony Orchestra, Melissa Etheridge, Yo-Yo Ma, the Mark Morris Dance Group and much more that you just don’t want to miss!
Although the Tanglewood season doesn’t officially kick off until July 5th, popular performances begin in mid June, which is right around the corner! Don’t wait another moment to plan your summer getaway to the Berkshires; with the line-up Tanglewood has to offer this year you won’t want to miss it!

There are tickets for Saturday Morning Rehearsals so you can spend an entire day at Tanglewood starting with the rehearsal, then perhaps a tour of the grounds, maybe lunch in one of the cafés on property followed by the afternoon or evening performance.
