The Tanglewood on Labor Day Weekend always rocks! This popular and long-celebrated tradition sends summer off on a high note and welcomes that most vibrant time of year, autumn in the Berkshires!
This year’s festival opens on Friday, September 4, with An Evening with Paquito d’Rivera.
Radio Deluxe with John Pizzarelli and Jessica Molskey sets the tone for Saturday afternoon, September 5. With special guests Bucky Pizzarelli, Aaron Weinstein, and Harry Allen, this event will be taped live for a national radio broadcast.
The evening features Reverse Thread with the Regina Carter Quartet as well as Dreaming the Duke with Nnenna Freelon, Harolyn Blackwell and, and Mike Garson.
Swing and sway on Sunday afternoon with A Piano Duet with Kenny Barron, Mulgrew Miller, and the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra.
The Jazz Festival concludes on Sunday evening with A Triumph of Trumpets with the Jon Faddis Quartet and The Dave Holland Octet.
And back by popular demand, the Tanglewood Jazz Cafe features exciting new artists performing prior to each show in a relaxed cabaret-style setting, free with a ticket to the mainstage performance.
You can purchase tickets by phone, 888-266-1200, online at tanglewood.org, or in person at the Tanglewood Box Office.
And Birchwood still has good availability!
