Tanglewood Takes Flight:
A Celebration of Birds and Music with Mass Audubon

Tanglewood

Artist & Program Information

Friday, July 28 Events 7AM-10AM

Tanglewood Takes Flight: A Celebration of Birds and Music with Mass Audubon, Tanglewood's multi-faceted, first-ever collaboration with Mass Audubon, stretches the idea of concert-going in a new direction for the Festival: the series will feature six guided bird walks/talks, the earliest of which will take place at 5:30 a.m. at Pleasant Valley, and five concerts, with three performances to take place as early as 7 a.m., in close proximity to the scheduled early morning bird walks. The bird walks will be partnered with music from Messiaen's Catalogue of the Birds, a monumental series of 13 piano pieces portraying the birds of Europe, to be performed by Pierre-Laurent Aimard and Piano Fellows of the Tanglewood Music Center at both Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary and Tanglewood (7/27-30).
