“Labor Day Jazz Concerts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

Tanglewood has had a tradition of featuring jazz concerts over Labor Day weekend, after the conclusion of the BSO's summer season.

This year my husband and I heard two excellent concerts on Saturday -- Donal Fox in the afternoon and Harry Connick Jr. in the evening, We got lawn tickets for *both* concerts for $40/each!

The weather forecast was for rain. It held off in the afternoon, but in the evening, 10 minutes before the concert was scheduled to start, a severe weather announcement was made and lawn attendees were asked to come into the shed and grab a seat to hear the concert (and the thunder) from a safe, dry venue. The "migration" went smoothly and after a few minutes delay, HC came on stage with his incredible musicians and wowed everyone for almost two hours.

By the time the concert was over so was the rain!

“Love Coming Here on a Nice Day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

Love coming to Tanglewood on Sunday afternoons. Even when it hot out there is a breeze and it doesn’t seem as hot here. It is a relaxing enjoyable end to a weekend, listening to music, ready the Sunday paper and picnics on the lawn. If it a hot day, come early to get a place in the shade….

“Tanglewood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

I visited Tanglewood recently to see Grace Potter & the Nocturnals. The entire venue is beautiful, it's great to walk around the lawn and listen to great music. Lawn tickets were inexpensive and there were large screens to see the acts more clearly.

“The lawn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

Saw the Boston Symphony and stayed on the lawn where we could picnic and totally relax! Big jumbotrons so you can see the orchestra while listening to the glorious music. No better a place to hear the BSO!!!
