Tanglewood on Parade returns in the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s annual celebration with the Boston Pops Orchestra and the Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra performing Hindemith, John Williams and Ravel, with Thomas Adès, Stefan Asbury, JoAnn Falletta, Thomas Wilkins, and John Williams. TMC Fellows will perform chamber music throughout the afternoon, and Brass Fanfares fill the Shed at 7:30 p.m.

Program will include:

Hindemith — Symphonic Metamorphosis on Themes by Carl Maria von Weber
John Williams — Just Down West Street on the Left
Ravel — La Valse
Tchaikovsky — 1812 Overture

In La Valse, Ravel’s brilliantly orchestrated score captures the glitter and the violence of a society that, even as he was composing, had passed away.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
