There are as many reasons to love Tanglewood as there are people who come here. What’s your reason?

No matter the answer, Tanglewood is working to enhance this magical, musical experience for everyone right now, and for the future.

No single definition can capture the entirety of Tanglewood. A place of distinct natural beauty, a legendary music festival, a cherished family tradition, an academy for tomorrow’s top musicians, a welcoming community unto itself—Tanglewood is all this and so much more. And it has been for generations. Put simply, Tanglewood differentiates the BSO from other orchestras.

Now, as Tanglewood enters its ninth decade, the Boston Symphony Orchestra embarks on an ambitious and transformative initiative that will reflect and project everything that makes Tanglewood truly unique. Tanglewood Forever, a $64 million donor-funded initiative, will expand Tanglewood’s creative intersection of music and learning, enhance its natural beauty, improve the visitor experience, connect communities, and ensure its future.

Tanglewood means so many things to so many people, and it means so much to all of them. Tanglewood Forever donors will sustain and improve this magical, musical place for anyone and everyone inclined to experience it, now and for generations to come.

What’s Next for Tanglewood?

Linde Center for Music and Learning

The new multi-use, multi-season Linde Center for Music and Learning complex will support the performance and rehearsal activities of the Tanglewood Music Center and host the Tanglewood Learning Institute, which will offer education and enrichment programs to enhance the visitor experience.

Tanglewood Learning Institute

Given the existing and unique combination of performance and education activities and the large seasonal audience base, Tanglewood is primed to expand on the intersection of learning and performance through the creation of the Tanglewood Learning Institute (TLI).

Bernstein Campus Visitor Experience Improvements

Tanglewood Forever donors will make the Bernstein Campus even more efficient and appealing for guests to better serve growing audiences and encourage productive, social, community-oriented gathering.

Enhancing Tanglewood's Horticultural Legacy and Treasures

The BSO has ambitious, long-term plans to restore and enhance the horticultural landmarks of the entire Tanglewood campus.

Endowment for Programs and Facilities

Tanglewood Forever donors will allow the BSO to create new cultural and intellectual pursuits through music and education, and provide for ongoing campus enhancements well into the future.
