Under the setting sun, the gazebo looks gorgeous

Tanglewood 弹歌舞得

297 West Street
Lenox, MA 01240

Tanglewood is an art venue, mostly known for being the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. It’s in Lenox and Stockbridge, the Berkshire Hills of western MA.

It’s dating back to 1930s. The first concerts was performances by New York Philharmonic Orchestra on August, 23, 1934 and was attended by FDR’s mother, Sara Delano Roosevelt. The NYPO would play a few more concerts that summer and returned for the second season in 1935. However, Conductor Serge Koussevitzky led BSO in 1936 and the venue eventually moved to Tanglewood in 1937. New York, as it seemed, lost out big time.

We first went there in 1996. My two toddlers enjoyed it enormously. The most endearing scene was when my two years old toddler heard Beethoven and began to dance to the music. We also discovered Sterling Vineyard‘s pretty delicious Chardonnay from their wine shop, next to the box office.

On our first visited, we stayed at the Ponds at Foxhollow (a timeshare) in Lenox, 3.5 miles from the main stage, Koussevitzky Music Shed.

The main venue is the Shed. The Seiji Ozawa Hall (who conducted BSO 1973-2002) was added in 1994, where pre concert performances were staged. The Linde Center opened in the autumn of 2019.

Symbiotic @ Sunken Meadow

Flushing 法拉盛

The new Chinatown of New York. The old Chinatown in lower Manhattan (… used to be all Cantonese) is kind of fading out as Flushing rises.

Flushing is more of Mandarin speaking community. But lately, (perhaps since 2000, many other dialects are being spoken, such as Wenzhou …)

The Town Hall on the corner of Northern Blvd & Linden Place.

The building booms in 2010s. the page
