On Friday, beginning at 5:30pm, Tanglewood hosts a perfect combination that should be of interest to concert goers. It is a new concept that should be popular, educational and basically a lot of fun.
Purchase a lawn ticket for $35 and receive admission to a microbrew beer tasting at the Formal Garden Tent.. At the beer tasting tent, you will have the opportunity to sample beer from microbreweries from around the area, as well as appetizers and snacks. This event lasts from 5:30 to 8pm, certainly enough time to sample all of the beers offered.
After the beer tasting, at 8:30pm, your lawn ticket admits you to an evening of exceptional music. Conductor Stephane Deneve will lead a Beethoven and Prokofiev program featuring pianist and soloist Emanual Ax, followed by mezzo-soprano Elena Manistina. If you have not witnessed Conductor Deneve’s style before, pay special attention to his dramatic movements as he leads the Boston Symphony Orchestra during this special evening.
If you attend the concert and beer tasting on August 15th, consider being part of the new Tanglewood Lawncast. The lawncast is designed for patron interested in a technology-enhanced lawn experience and offers concert goers access to program notes, interviews and additional concert feeds through smartphones and tablets. Pre-registration is necessary and can be done so by linking in with the Tanglewood website at: www.Tanglewood.org
