In the last few weeks, a number of dates have been added to the upcoming Tanglewood Popular Artists Series. Sting, Melissa Etheridge, Diana Ross, and many more will be lighting up the Berkshires this summer. Where will you be?
The Tanglewood Festival of Contemporary Music brings seemingly endless hours of wonderful music to the Berkshires every year. While the focus of the festival is primarily classical music, that’s not all!
As we reported earlier, Tanglewood already had Natalie Merchant, David Sedaris, JAWS, and the Avett Brothers on the schedule in February. Now they’ve added Sting, James Taylor, Diana Ross, John Mellencamp, and so many more.
Just look at the lineup, now!
