Talks and Walks

Talks and Walks
Talks and Walks is a series of informal conversations presented by the Boston Symphony Association of Volunteers, featuring guest artists and members of the BSO family. Bring along a picnic lunch and join us in the Tent Club on Thursday afternoons, July 6 through August 24, for lively and informative discussions. The Tent Club opens at noon. Talks begin at 1pm. 

Single tickets are $19 each, and Friends of Tanglewood and Business Partners can purchase single tickets for $16 each. Single tickets will not be sold in advance. For additional information, call 413-637-5393 or email

The Talks and Walks series is supported by a gift from the Perles Law Firm in honor of the victims of the Beirut Marine Barracks Bombing and their families.
