Since 1935, the Boston Symphony Orchestra has performed for sold-out crowds in the Seiji Ozawa Hall and Koussevitzky Shed, a.k.a. “The Shed,” however amidst the BSO concerts and touring pop and jazz artists that frequent TMC, the Boston University Tanglewood Institute (BUTI) has attracting the most talented youth musicians from across the globe for an summer music inattentive, with full access to all TMC events and opportunities to work with the worlds most talented conductors and teachers.

tanglewood2This July, the top Dudamel Brass musicians from Conservatory Lab had the opportunity to experience first-hand the transformative power of the Tanglewood experience. Our students attended a BSO and BUTI rehearsal, had a coaching with Axiom Brass – the resident brass quintet from Chicago, and performed for the BUTI Brass Fellows. The weekend will also include a BSO and BUTI concert and a trip to Lenox, MA for sight-seeing and a celebratory dinner.
