We saw the Boston Symphony perform Beethoven's Ninth in an open setting on a beautiful summer day. What could be better?

We enjoyed Rachmaninov at the concert. Bring your lag, wine and food. It was a real-life heaven. We brought little kids, but it was not a problem at all.

We were not able to see a show here but the grounds were open for just walking. Very pretty setting and peaceful. Would love to see a show here sometime.

We'd never been to Tanglewood before. It's a wonderful mix of outdoor space and classical music. Would definitely recommend a visit.
