Tanglewood is a unique venue and absolutely worth a visit. Over the past few years they have diversified and now offer something for everyone. Be sure to plan well ahead to get tickets and to reserve an inn. Bring your picnic dinner or check out the local shops for takeout food and wine....or check the website for on site food... More

It's hard to explain what it is like sitting in such a beautiful place that takes you back in time when life moved at a different pace. The Boston Symphony Tanglewood orchestra was fabulous. The views of the Berkshires was stunning. One can truly feel inspired here.

Not a great set up in the Pavilion. (If you had lawn seats it would be nicer as far as -lawn/picnic/own chairs, food, beverages including alcohol versus their very uncomfortable, run down seats in the pavilion. Very expensive for what you get! Our box seats had obstructions. Not to mention, they have designated areas ONLY to drink beer or wine... More

We come to the Berkshires yearly from NY. This year again, the highlight was time spent at Tanglewood. First we saw a Baroque Opera Recital at Ozawa Hall done by the terrific visiting Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra from the SF Bay Area. Then, as we were leaving Saturday afternoon, we attended the pre-recital talk and then rehearsal of the Boston Symphony... More

We took in a performance at Seiji Ozawa Hall a few days ago and it was just beautiful. It was the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra from San Francisco. The acoustics in the hall are perfect. It is a beautiful piece of architecture. The campus of hundreds of acres is a beautiful summer scene. No visit to the Berkshires is complete without... More

We had a great concert experience listening to Train and Andy Grammer. Acoustics were terrific and the show was terrific. Been to this venue several times--never disappointed. One recommendation would be that the screens be enlarged and increased so better views can be seen of the performers on the stage for all who enjoy viewing from the lawn.

Each year, Tanglewood also serves as the home of the Tanglewood Music Festival that has been going strong since 1934. Music fans come to picnic and listen to music on this 500 acre complex that is dominated by the 5,000... More

Having traveled the world and been to may concerts, I must say that Tanglewood is one of the most magical venues I have ever experienced. The sound was awesome, and the combination of spectacular sound, indoor seating, and acres of open lawn seating for families and picnics, made this one of the most versatile and special places to enjoy an...

Saw the band Train at Tanglewood. What a great experience . They let you bring ANYTHING in -including bottles of wine and beer, regular glasses . Any kind of food you want . We saw people carrying in pizza boxes! People bring tables with real tablecloths and place settings. We sat on the lawn . They put up big screens... More
