an opportunity to see, hear, touch, and play instruments of the orchestra.
Managed by the Boston Symphony Association of Volunteers, the Instrument Playground offers children and adults an opportunity to see, hear, touch, and play instruments of the orchestra in an effort to deepen their understanding of the orchestra, allowing them first-hand contact with orchestral instruments, and to inspire future participation in instrumental music.
Instrument Playgrounds during the 2020 Tanglewood season have been canceled. Please check back in 2021 for upcoming instrument playgrounds at Tanglewood!
The Instrument Playground is intended to serve the broad Berkshire community, and often provides a first point of exposure to a wide range of musical instruments.
