Families are invited to attend a live taping of WBUR’s award-winning "Circle Round" podcast at Tanglewood!

Host Rebecca Sheir and composer Eric Shimelonis will be joined on stage at Tanglewood's Linde Center for Music and Learning by a quartet of BSO musicians (piccolo player Cindy Meyers, bassoonist Suzanne Nelsen, horn player Rachel Childers, and double bassist Ben Levy), along with "Song Exploder" host Hrishikesh Hirway, Shakespeare & Co. founder Tina Packer, "Wait, Wait… Don’t Tell Me!" panelists Josh Gondelman and Faith Salie, and actor William Christian, as they record three new "Circle Round" episodes: “Fighting Like Cats and Dogs," a Korean tale about the real reason cats and dogs often don’t get along; “Fair-Feathered Friends,” a Burmese legend about why the song thrush sings so colorfully but has such drab feathers; and “One Wish,” a story with Irish, Indian, and Jewish roots about a whole new way to make your dreams come true. The live taping will be released as three separate podcast episodes in the “Circle Round” feed.

Doors open at 2:30pm
