Join Circle Round and the Boston Symphony Orchestra for a special live taping of the podcast at the new Linde Center for Music & Learning at Tanglewood featuring BSO musicians performing original scores and a new version of the Circle Round theme song by Eric Shimelonis.  Hosted by Rebecca Sheir, Circle Round is a popular children’s storytelling podcast which adapts folktales from around the world into action-packed radio plays, complete with original music and notable voices from the stage and screen.

The star-studded cast, including Tanglewood alum Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet UnderMy Fair Lady), Jane Kaczmarek ("CHIPS," "Malcolm in the Middle"), Thomas Sadoski (The Newsroom, Life in Pieces) and Campbell Scott ("Amazing Spider-Man 2," "House of Cards") will perform new stories including "Kangaroo and Joey Too" from Australia, "Practice Makes Progress" from the Antilles and "The Magic Bowl" from the West Indies and Ghana.

WBUR will record these live performances and release them as episodes for the special summer "pop-up" season to be released July 9, 16 and 23.

No tickets are required for this free, live taping. Admission is first come, first served. 

This performance is part of Tanglewood Learning Institute’s Open House on June 30, which is a free community event open to participants of all ages at the new Linde Center for Music and Learning. Join us for musical performances, conversations with artists and composers and engaging, interactive activities for children and families. RSVPs not required.
