Time to start thinking about Tanglewood

March 20, 2009 by Applegate Inn

Today is the first day of Spring! We are so happy that winter is finally rolling around the corner for the year, and we can start to think and plan for all the exciting activities that take place in the Spring in the Berkshires, especially Tanglewood.

The Tanglewood Festival is an annual celebration of music held at the Tanglewood Music Center in Lenox. It is the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and setting for a variety of musical performances and events. One of the best ways to spend a summer evening in the Berkshires is to grab a blanket, some fixin’s for a picnic & head to Tanglewood for a night of music as the sun sets and the stars come out.

The Boston Symphony Orchestra is currently running a Clark/Tanglewood ticket offer: Buy now and pay only $45 for two tickets to The Clark and two Tanglewood lawn tickets. I had to read that three times before I believed my eyes; four tickets to world-renowned art and mucis venues for only $45?!? It is an amazing deal and one you should take advantage of right away!

The Clark is located in Williamstown, about a 45 minute drive from both the Tanglewood Music Center and our Massachusetts Bed and Breakfast. Of course, the drive through our pastoral landscape in the summer with a warm breeze in your hair is not much of a chore. Plus, The Clark is not to be missed.

The Clark features an outstanding collection of Impressionist, American, and Old Master paintings, set among 140 scenic acres with hiking and walking trails. On view this summer, Dove/O’Keeffe: Circles of Influence and Through the Seasons: Japanese Art in Nature.

We are all eager for the Tanglewood Jazz Festival coming up on Labor Day weekend! You can already feel the excitement in the air around here. I have been getting reservations for Labor Day weekend as soon as Tanglewood announced their line up for the Jazz Festival. If you are planing to come, be sure to make reservations ASAP as rooms are filling up for this  busy weekend: http://www.webervations.com/magic-scripts/resbook.asp?memberid=applegateinn .
