Lenox, MA – The Boston Symphony Orchestra (BSO) recently announced a major new investment in the future of Tanglewood Music Center. Plans include a new four-building complex to support the performance and rehearsal activities of the center and to serve as the home of the new Tanglewood learning institute.
Opening in summer 2019, the new complex will be climate-controlled and made available for use by the Berkshire community during the off-season.
Major improvements will also include renovations to the Ozawa Hall Bernstein campus, including a reconfiguration of the entranceway gate to effectively integrate the campus with the new building complex, and improved restroom and food service amenities.
This $30 million building project is part of a multi-year fundraising effort to support ongoing Tanglewood building upgrades and horticultural renewal programs, providing enhanced experiences for current and future generations of concertgoers and performing artists.
William Rawn Associates, Architects, will design the new buildings. Reed Hilderbrand will serve as the landscape architect.
In addition, The BSO will implement a new horticultural plan for Tanglewood’s famous 524-acre grounds, investing in both redesigning and revitalizing landscape elements, as well as uniform strategies for documenting, maintaining, preserving, and enhancing its horticultural assets.
