“Symphony & Blue Skies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Outside under a gorgeous summer sky with your favorite friends, wine, food and beautiful classical music filling the air. It was a wonderful experience and we cannot wait to return for more concerts.

Such a lovely setting for an evening concert! Bringing a picnic and enjoying the music is so pleasant!

“A Grand Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Tanglewood is such a wonderful place to go !

* Make sure you get there early ; parking could be a hassle ! Then you can pick your perfect
spot on the lawn, read your book, go for walk around the grounds, sit and relax,
people watch, take a nap or just be...

I have heard Classical music in the Summer of 2010 a few times on the lawn; Great experience !

The James Taylor Charity Event on July 2nd 2012 in the shed.

The tickets are cheap for the lawn; which is the best place to sit because you can still hear the music, people watch, get up and walk around without disturbing the people next to you if you were in the shed, and I think you can't eat in the shed. The shed is a great place to sit if it was raining !

“Summer living”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

We have yet to sit in the shed for a concert because we love the lawn experience so much! We have invested in a "garden cart" with big rubber wheels to carry all of our picnic gear. Last year we even upgraded to a folding picnic table & stools. It is such a wonderful experience to hear live music, outdoors on summer's afternoon or evening. Always a good idea to bring a tarp or something to put under your blanket since the evening air can be moist. A don't miss experience!
