Talks and Walks

Talks and Walks
Talks and Walks is a series of informal conversations presented by the Boston Symphony Association of Volunteers, featuring guest artists and members of the BSO family. Bring along a picnic lunch and join us in the Tent Club on Thursday afternoons, July 6 through August 24, for lively and informative discussions. The Tent Club opens at noon. Talks begin at 1pm.

You may also purchase single tickets the day of the event at the Tent Club from noon-1pm. Single tickets are $19 each, and Friends of Tanglewood and Business Partners can purchase single tickets for $16 each. Single tickets will not be sold in advance.
