Boston Symphony announces 2022 season of Tanglewood


Tanglewood’s 2022 season, June 17-September 4, will feature a wide array of programming highlighting favorite returning artists and repertoire, while also featuring dynamic new artists and an eclectic lineup, featuring eight world and US premieres and 28 works by living composers, as well as 21 artists in their Tanglewood or BSO debut. Details available at tanglewood.org.

Tanglewood returns to its full-season schedule this summer, featuring eight weekends of Boston Symphony Orchestra programming, plus concerts by Boston Pops, a solid lineup of popular artists, and performances by Fellows of the Tanglewood Music Center. , the orchestra’s summer music academy and a destination for many of the most talented young musicians of our time. A highlight of the summer will be the reopening of Ozawa Hall and the Linde Center for Music and Learning (both closed in summer 2020 and 2021), where smaller audiences enjoy recitals, music by chamber and performances by guest ensembles, as well as the Tanglewood Learning Institute’s special events, focusing on innovative programs and audience participation. The Linde Center, the festival’s newest performance venue, opened in 2019 to critical and public acclaim.

Said Andris Nelsons, musical director of Ray and Maria Stata BSO. “Each year, I look forward to the Orchestra’s return to Tanglewood, as we join our dedicated musical community for wonderful concerts in the beautiful setting of the Berkshire Hills. Tanglewood’s 2022 season is filled with so many styles of wonderful composition, performed by the most extraordinary musicians working today, including our very own Boston Symphony Orchestra. We hope today’s announcement will excite music fans everywhere as we look forward with looking forward to warmer days and a summer season full of inspiring performances at Tanglewood.

Gail Samuel, President and CEO of Eunice and Julian Cohen BSO, said: “This summer, we look forward to delivering a strong season of performances to inspire long-time fans and invite new visitors to experience Tanglewood for the first time. From the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Boston Pops to scholarship recipients from the Tanglewood Music Center and the Tanglewood Learning Institute, we hope to bring inspiration and delight to everyone who experiences the festival. As we prepare to welcome visitors for another summer, we will continue to work diligently to provide the safest environment possible for our audiences to enjoy all that Tanglewood has to offer.”
