Tanglewood Gala

Isaac Stern

Tanglewood Virtual Gala
Thursday, July 23, 2020

Please join us on Thursday, July 23, 2020 at 8:00 pm to celebrate the centennial of legendary American violinist Isaac Stern, one of the most prominent artists of the 20th century. Stern’s long relationship with the BSO began in January 1948, with his debut at Symphony Hall and at Tanglewood the following summer. He continued to perform regularly at Symphony Hall and Tanglewood for nearly 50 years.

Artists from around the world and musicians who had a long association with Stern will join us to celebrate this legendary artist through spoken word, musical performances and archival footage.

This event is free to those who register.
