BSO Artistic Advisor for Education and Community Engagement and Germeshausen Youth and Family Concerts Conductor Thomas Wilkins hosts the online edition of the 2020 Tanglewood Family Concert: a special three-episode compilation created in partnership with WBUR’s award-winning podcast Circle Round, which adapts folktales from around the world into radio plays for kids aged 4 to 10. Each episode stars beloved voices from stage and screen and features a new score composed by Eric Shimelonis and played by a BSO soloist. The tales for this virtual event include “Every Other Friday,” a story from Mexico about a baker and countess featuring actors Melora Hardin and Gildart Jackson and BSO double bassist Ben Levy; “The Famer’s Coin, “ a Korean tale about a hardworking farmer featuring actors Greta Jung and Jin Ha and BSO violist Danny Kim; and an African story about the value of being slow and steady, featuring actor Chloe Coleman and BSO tuba player Mike Roylance. The audio presentation will also be available on wbur.org.
