The Tanglewood 2020 Online Festival
Thank you for your support of the Tanglewood 2020 Online Festival!
With the Tanglewood 2020 Online Festival closing soon, we want to thank you for being a part of our Tanglewood family. As a generous supporter, your dedication kept the music playing so listeners all over the world could enjoy the Tanglewood experience together, even if apart. For that, we are deeply grateful.
Your support enabled 38,000 views of 78 programs over eight weeks, including new recordings by world-renowned musicians, talented Tanglewood Music Center (TMC) Fellows sharing their learning process, brilliant guest speakers teaching new ways of understanding music and our world, and our own BSO musicians performing unique and unusual pieces.
As a token of our appreciation, please enjoy this performance of Randall Thompson’s "Alleluia," commissioned by Serge Koussevitzky and performed annually during the TMC Opening Exercises. BSO Associate Principal Horn Richard "Gus" Sebring, Margaret Andersen Congleton chair, produced this special performance featuring members of the 2020 TMC brass section. It is followed by an archival recording of Thompson discussing his composition process for the piece.
Thank you again for your support. We cannot wait until we can be together again, in person, when the time is right.
