This Friday, June 28, at 9 a.m., Tanglewood marks one of the most anticipated events of the 2019 music season, the official opening weekend of the four-building Linde Center for Music and Learning and Tanglewood Learning Institute programs, with a public ribbon-cutting ceremony that will include speeches from a cross-section of the administration, builders, and funders who made the new complex and programming initiatives possible. Following the ribbon-cutting, the public can tour the facility, located along the top of the Highwood ridge, overlooking Ozawa Hall and the Berkshire Hills.

The first fundamental expansion in programming in many decades, the offerings of the Tanglewood Learning Institute-more than 140 activities-reflect today's wider cultural shift towards learning and participatory activities that complement the concert experience. These programs have been designed to encourage thought-provoking conversations as they explore ways to better understand the world through the lens of music and break down traditional boundaries between performer and audience. Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, historian Doris Kearns Goodwin, soprano Renee Fleming, cellist Yo-Yo Ma, BSO Music Director Andris Nelsons, and playwright Tom Stoppard, are among the many luminaries joining Tanglewood for these expansive programs. Complete program details of the first summer season of the Tanglewood Learning Institute are available here.
