Dear Friends,
For your quiet weekend at home, we are delighted to continue our new videos series with Episode #2: Apollo’s Fire at Tanglewood. The renowned Tanglewood Festival holds a special place in my heart, as this is where I studied conducting with Leonard Bernstein and Roger Norrington in my early 20’s. Bringing Apollo’s Fire to Tanglewood in 2015 and 2017 was especially heartwarming for me. And as you will see, the audience welcomed us with astonishing enthusiasm.
So, imagine yourselves strolling the lovely green grounds of Tanglewood, as you approach the charming redwood structure of Ozawa Hall….
Wishing you health and inspiration,
Jeannette Sorrell, Artistic Director
