Though winter just started, it's not too early to be thinking a little bit about summer.

To that end, the 2019 Tanglewood schedule is out. A few of the announced-so-far dates that caught our eye:

This is not a full listing. And more shows will be added over time, including (probably) a handful of pop concerts. Tickets go on sale February 10.

June 15: Live from Here with Chris Thile (the reformulated with Prairie Home Companion, hosted by Thile of the Punch Brothers)

July 3-4: James Taylor (these shows always sell out)

July 5: Boston Symphony Orchestra
opening night - Andris Nelsons conducts Mozart and Mahler featuring pianist Emanuel Ax

July 7: Boston Pops Orchestra - "Across the Stars: Music of John Williams" with violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter

July 10: Star violinist Hilary Hahn playing an all-Bach program

July 16: Classic guitarist Miloš playing a program that includes Beatles songs

July 20: The Brightness of Light - a piece about Georgia O'Keefe and Alfred Stieglitz performed by Renée Fleming, Rod Gilfry, and the BSO

I just learned about the Woman's Club of Albany yesterday, during the Holiday House tour. It's a really large space that is chock full of character, and they rent it out for parties of the type Maureen is interested in.
