The Tanglewood Experience: Music to Your Ears
Immerse yourself in Tanglewood, the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Learn about Tanglewood's history and elegance from our lecturer, a classically trained opera singer, and enjoy a concert by the BSO or Boston Pops in the Koussevitzky Music Shed.

Williamstown Theater Festival in Summer
Experience the rich history of the Festival's summer tenure at the new '62 Center for Theatre and Dance. Study plays, directors and actors of the past and present. Evaluate characters, themes and production with our professional theatre educator.

Dance of the Century
Enjoy total immersion into the world of Shakespeare. Attend an exclusive class on one of the many aspects of Elizabethan theatre which the members of Shakespeare & Company excel in. Understand the classical ideals of inquiry, balance, and harmony. Enjoy a picnic dinner on the grounds, enjoy pre or post show talks with actors and Company staff. Learn how Shakespeare & Co. performs as the Elizabethans did — in love with poetry, physical prowess, and the mysteries of the universe.
