In the midst of a bitterly cold winter, soaking in the bright sunshine on the Tanglewood lawn or sitting in the Koussevitsky Music Shed in the Berkshires seems entirely too far away. However, it is never too early to make plans for Tanglewood! Tickets just went on sale on Sunday, January 26 and this summer season is packed to the brim with acclaimed musicians and celebrity sightings. Visit www.tanglewood.org for the full schedule.
