Now in its fourth season, BSO 101-the free music appreciation series with BSO Director of Program Publications Marc Mandel and members of the Boston Symphony Orchestra-offers insight into music being performed by the BSO at Symphony Hall. This summer, BSO 101 returns to Tanglewood in four free lunchtime sessions, on Wednesdays from 12:45-2pm in the Tent Club. Each session will focus on a single work to be played by the BSO that weekend, examining and illuminating aspects of musical shape and form, and of the composer's individual musical style. All of these sessions will include recorded musical examples, and each is self-contained, so that no prior musical training, or attendance at any previous session, is required. Bring o r buy a lunch, and arrive ready to hear about great works from the BSO repertoire-and to hear them in new and exciting ways!
