Friends and Society Membership

Each summer, the Boston Symphony Orchestra resides at Tanglewood, its idyllic home in the Berkshire Hills. As America's premier summer music festival, Tanglewood attracts the world's most accomplished musicians, composers, conductors, and students.
By supporting Tanglewood as a Friend of Tanglewood or a Tanglewood Society member, you afford Tanglewood the freedom to continue its unique union of artistry and landscape. No other orchestra in the country maintains a summer residence of such stature and beauty. Tanglewood supports the local economy, enriches the cultural life of the Berkshire Hills, and preserves 529 acres of majestic grounds for future generations of musicians and music lovers.

Donors who give $100 or more become members of the Friends of Tanglewood. Those who give $3,000 or more become Tanglewood Society members. In appreciation, we offer you exclusive benefits and privileges for the year ahead, all designed to honor your membership support and enhance your experience of Tanglewood.
