“This June, the Boston Symphony Orchestra will be premiering a new work of a different kind at Tanglewood—a new performance facility,” writes Michele Herrmann in Saturday’s (6/1) Forbes.com. “At their summer residence on the Tanglewood estate within The Berkshires in Massachusetts, the BSO will open The Tanglewood Institute, a massive four-building addition to the orchestra’s Tanglewood campus. The new building will serve as a learning site. It will include the Linde Center for Music and Learning, the new home for TLI’s education based programmatic offerings…. According to Boston Symphony Orchestra CEO Mark Volpe, the idea for TLI is one involving an immersive experience for its audiences…. Beginning on June 22, the TLI’s inaugural season will have more than 140 events…. The schedule encompasses different sub-series. They include: ‘The Big Idea’ [featuring] some of the world’s greatest thinkers and luminaries…. Led by world-renowned musicians, ‘TLI MasterPass’ provides an insider’s view of the process that musicians and composers experience in fine-tuning their interpretive skills. … ‘Meet the Makers’ will schedule conversations with artists across different genres [including] Benoît Rolland, one of the world’s preeminent bow makers in the French tradition … post-post-modern diva Meow Meow … and playwright Tom Stoppard.”
