Tanglewood’s 2011 ticket-discount focus: museums, local residents, students, and families

Posted on: June 30, 2011

The Tanglewood Music Festival in Lenox, Massachusetts is offering several discounted-ticket programs for local residents, families, and students. Among the initiatives are free lawn tickets to children and young adults age 17 and under;  tickets for students 18 and over at a 50 percent discount; partnerships with the nearby Clark Art Institute and Norman Rockwell Museum, which include $50 ticket packages good for museum admission for two, plus two lawn tickets to Tanglewood classical concerts; and Berkshire Resident Season Lawn Passes for $75, offering discounted lawn admission to classical concerts for year-round Berkshire County residents. Tickets for Tanglewood’s annual family concert, held this year on August 20, are free for children 17 and under, and $10 per adult. Tanglewood, now in its 74th season, is the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra; the 2011 festival takes place from June 25 to September 4, with Charles Dutoit leading the BSO’s opening-night gala performance on July 8, in a program of Bellini, Verdi, Respighi, and Rossini, with vocal soloists.
