The Boston Symphony Orchestra has announced details of Tanglewood’s 2010 season, which opens on July 9 with a performance of Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 (“Resurrection”) with the BSO, Tanglewood Festival Chorus, soprano Layla Claire, and mezzo-soprano Stephanie Blythe, led by BSO Music Director James Levine. Levine will conduct eight performances at Tanglewood, including Mahler’s Symphony No. 3—part of a multi-season cycle of Mahler symphonies. He is one of a group of conductors participating in Tanglewood on Parade, which will celebrate John Williams’s 30th Tanglewood season. Other performers scheduled to appear at Tanglewood are the Mark Morris Dance Group, which will perform Morris’s Grand Duo, set to music by Lou Harrison; former BSO Music Director Seiji Ozawa leading the Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra in Ravel’s Daphnis and Chloé; and Keith Lockhart leading the Boston Pops, whose guest performers include Arlo Guthrie, James Taylor, and Carole King. Among the conductors who will lead programs at Tanglewood are Robert Spano, music director of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, and Giancarlo Guerrero, music director of the Nashville Symphony. Tanglewood, located in Lenox, Massachusetts, has been the summer home of the BSO since 1937. For more information on Tanglewood’s 2010 season, visit the BSO website.
