Tanglewood

Koussevitzky Music Shed - Lenox, MA - View Map

From 1958 until 1972, Leonard Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic presented a landmark Grammy-award winning series of televised Young People's Concerts™ which introduced classical music to millions of listeners. Inspired by Bernstein's pioneering work as an educator, the BSO and Andris Nelsons offer a one-time-only hour-long program designed especially for young audiences and their families. Following in the great tradition of her father, Jamie Bernstein will be the evening's host and presenter. Andris Nelsons believes in music's ability to transport us to a better place and to impact humanity; a belief he shares with Leonard Bernstein. Please join us for this historic evening that will include musician interviews, musical examples, and audience participation, along with rare video footage. It will surely be a highlight of the Tanglewood season!

Inspired by Bernstein's pioneering work as an educator, the BSO and Andris Nelsons offer a one-time-only hour-long program called "Why Music Matters - according to Ludwig and Lenny", designed especially for young audiences and their families.

GATES OPEN AT 4:30PM.
Please note that children of all ages are allowed in the shed with a ticket for this performance. Free children's tickets are only available on the lawn
