George and Lynn were absolutely great in every respect; looking after us as they would do for their own children. We have done multiple programs with them and will continue to do so!

I'm sort of written-out at this point. But feel free to quote what I wrote in my evaluation, if you think you can use any of it.

We have known of Tanglewood for over 50 years and always hoped we would get there. So here we are in our 80's and we finally made it as part of our 60th anniversary celebration. We were so pleased with what we experienced both from an incredible music experience, which we expected, but also from an educational experience from the perspective of musicians, musicologist, conductor and manager. Learning the history of Tanglewood was fascinating.

The beauty of Tanglewood and the music from BSO was outstanding. Thank you Road Scholar for making this program so delightful. We will look forward to another season in the near future. Gary and Myrna from San Diego.

The program was exceptional in every way. The group, though large, was friendly and congenial. The speakers and instrumental demonstrations were great, the music was glorious. A sunny Sunday afternoon with Beethoven's Ninth will be hard to beat.

I now understand the "Magic" of Tanglewood! Spine chilling music, wonderful speakers and great companions. Would recommend the weekend to anyone and everyone.

This was our third year in arrow that we attended - so I guess you can say we strongly recommend it. Not much better than a first class symphony in the Berkshires.
