I highly recommend checking out a performance... More

After flying across country we found idyllic Lenox, Ma., and the beautiful grounds of Tanglewood. We were there to see James Taylor (who lives in closeby Pittsfield) perform on this gorgeous property in the Berkshires. It was the perfect experience of a small New England town and it's friendly people. Tanglewood itself has acres and acres of land, and a... More

You really can't rate a venue as unique as this one! My sister and I attended two concerts, one in the main shell, and one in another hall. The concerts are wonderful and the seating was fine for us. We chose to purchase tickets inside the shell, rather than chance the weather, but there were thousands of folks on blankets,... More

I love Tangelwood. I was there as a kid and then 40 years later. Still a magical Musical venue. We sat in the shed. The night was lovely

I love sitting on the lawn... It is incredible but I have some advice to make your experience better 1. If you are going to eat on the lawn, bring something you can wheel to carry all the food. 2. Bring a tarp so the wetness of the grass doesn't penetrate your blankets. 3. Bring a blanket... Berkshire nights can... More

We especially love the sunday afternoon concerts where you can listen to the concert from the lawn. There are also last row sections that are very reasonably priced if I want to focus in on the concert. The atmosphere is just happy as everyone is so glad to be there.

Tanglewood completes the total personal experience. Of course the music is superb. More importantly, it is augmented by the sanctity of the venue. You can "hear" and feel the notes of music past from the masters of our time and their predecessors.

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.
