Boston University’s Tanglewood Institute—the summer training program for high school and college-age musicians based at Tanglewood in Lenox, Massachusetts—will mark its 50th anniversary this season from June 20 to August 13. Highlights include a new Visiting Artist Residency Program, with composer Nico Muhly and pianist Simone Dinnerstein, both BUTI alumni. Dinnerstein will be in residence from August 7 to 13, and Muhly will be in residence from July 25 to August 6. During their residencies, Dinnerstein and Muhly will teach classes, coach ensembles, talk about their careers, and work with student composers. Muhly’s compositions will be featured at the institute’s 50th anniversary concert on August 6, and Dinnerstein will perform with the Young Artists Orchestra as soloist in Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue on August 13, led by Ken-David Masur, a 1996 BUTI alumnus.
