Opening for Tanglewood’s new Linde Center set for June 28

Posted on: June 14, 2019

“A red carpet-style event will be held later this month to roll out Tanglewood’s new $33 million Linde Center for Music and Learning and its programming arm, the Tanglewood Learning Institute,” writes Clarence Fanto in Thursday’s (6/13) Berkshire Eagle (Pittsfield, MA). “The ambitious addition to the Boston Symphony’s 524-acre summer home represents the organization’s most wide-ranging and costly venture here since the construction and opening of Ozawa Hall 25 years ago…. The heated and air-conditioned Linde Center buildings are Tanglewood’s first year-round facilities. Beginning this fall, the complex will be available for Berkshire-based concert and event rentals…. The TLI’s mission, involving the BSO, the Boston Pops and the Tanglewood Music Center, will reach beyond the Berkshires, with Boston programs beginning this fall and online learning experiences to be added next year…. A ribbon-cutting ceremony open to the public is scheduled for 9 a.m. June 28…. A public tour of the facility will follow. The new complex overlooks Ozawa Hall and its lawn, and it is accessed via Hawthorne Road on the Stockbridge side of Tanglewood.” BSO Managing Director Mark Volpe describes the center’s opening as “a transformational moment” and “a symbolic beginning of a new era for Tanglewood.”
