Tanglewood's Linde Center programs to feature top musicians, authors

LENOX — Leading personalities from the music world, government, and theater will be the hallmark of this summer's grand opening of Tanglewood's new Linde Center for Music and Learning.

The completion of the four-building, all-season complex marks the most significant transformation of the 524-acre campus since Ozawa Hall opened in 1994. "You have structures that are heated and air-conditioned, allowing us to have much greater presence in the Berkshires and serve not only our mission, but the missions of our sister and brother arts organizations, and other educational and civic institutions," said Boston Symphony Orchestra President and Chief Executive Officer Mark Volpe. "The second element is that these buildings are works of art unto themselves and certainly complement the connection between music and nature. These buildings are true to that tradition."

The $33 million center will be the home to the Tanglewood Learning Institute (TLI), which aims to connect the public with BSO performers, guest artists, advanced students of the Tanglewood Music Center and cultural leaders. Funding was provided through a $64 million "Tanglewood Forever" campaign.

The schedule of 140 ticketed events includes four deep-immersion weekends, numerous special events, guest speakers, master classes. a seven-week Sunday evening film series in collaboration with the Berkshire International Film Festival, and a new 200-seat indoor/outdoor cafe open to the public for mingling with artists and students.

Among the big-name artists and speakers are cellist Yo-Yo Ma; Hollywood's most celebrated film composer and longtime Tanglewood eminence, John Williams; composer, conductor and pianist Andre Previn; soprano Renee Fleming; BSO Music Director Andris Nelsons; and pianist Emanuel "Manny" Ax. Also on the schedule are former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, historian/author Doris Kearns Goodwin, and award-winning playwright/screenwriter Tom Stoppard...
