ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

At the all-Wagner concert that opened the 1937 festival's second weekend, rain and thunder twice interrupted the Rienzi Overture, the tent collapsed on the orchestra while performing.
In 1940 a summer school, the Berkshire (now Tanglewood) Music Center, was begun in combination with the festival. Today it is one of the world's preeminent training grounds for composers, conductors, instrumentalists, and vocalists.
Since 1984 also known as the Tanglewood Music Festival.
