The hills are alive with the sound of music here, especially in August, with Tanglewood in full swing. And there’s big news in this neck of the woods: Tanglewood is now a year-round experience.
Red Lion Inn
For years, the loved music center shuttered once fall hit. But now you can experience this celebrated cultural getaway in the fall,winter and spring. The Tanglewood Learning Institute (TLI) debuted earlier this summer, a hub for cultural enrichment with year-round workshops, concerts with renowned and unconventional artists, immersion weekends, open rehearsals and master classes. TLI is housed in the New Linde Center for Music and Learning, a stunning four-building complex with a café, too, where you can mingle with the musicians and artists. Upcoming events include a three-day Film Weekend in late August featuring convos with legendary conductors and composers about the topic of how “music is both a core element and a central subject of drama.” And you can expect a full lineup of events and activities throughout the year. Info: tli.org.
Of course, there are other compelling reasons to visit The Berkshires. The museums are world-renowned, and farm-to-table restaurants are the real deal. Also, the inn and resort scene are turning heads.
Here’s where to eat, stay and play in a destination that nurtures heart and soul.
