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.

Jeremy Denk playing the Goldberg's, and Emmanuel Ax playing the Emperor -- what more could one want?

Tanglewood is the most picturesque location on the east coast with it majestic evergreens to vistas of the surrounding lakes. The music enhances the setting and the setting enhances the music. We were there for a week in July which started with the opening night that included fireworks, James Taylor and wonderful guest performers and classical music. In the summer... More

Whether picnicking on the lawn or up close and personal if you've been fortunate enough to get good seats, Tanglewood is the standard by which summer concerts are measured. The talent is first rate and so is the setting.

For many years, my wife and I talked about going to Tanglewood for the summer BSO program. Well, we finally went this year, attending a wonderful Sunday afternoon program of Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven. And we were so enthralled that we returned just two weeks later for a Saturday morning rehearsal of Leonard Bernstein's operetta "Candide." It's hard to say... More
