Tanglewood returns for summer weekends on 99.5 All Classical with a full slate of live BSO concerts beginning on July 8

This summer, every note from every thrilling Boston Symphony Orchestra concert at Tanglewood will be broadcast live by 99.5 All Classical and shared with public radio stations in Western New England and upstate New York. Beginning in July, every Friday and Saturday night concert, as well as every Sunday afternoon performance in the Koussevitsky Music Shed will be broadcast live via 99.5 FM and online at Once again hosted by Ron Della Chiesa, the live broadcasts have been expanded this year to include pre-concert interviews, features, and music from other Tanglewood locales and ensembles. The concerts air Fridays and Saturdays from 7-11pm, and Sundays from 1-5pm.

“From Ozawa’s debut to Bernstein’s farewell, musical memories are made every summer – and indeed, at every concert – at Tanglewood,” says Ben Roe, WGBH’s new Managing Director for Classical Services. “There is no festival in the world that equals Tanglewood’s special combination of great musical art made in such a beautiful natural setting. It’s one of the reasons we’re not only committed to broadcasting every single BSO performance from the Music Shed, but also to expand the broadcasts so that we may include the remarkable performances by the Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra, as well as the great chamber performances at Seiji Ozawa hall.” 99.5’s Tanglewood broadcasts will also be heard on WFCR in Amherst, MA; WMNR Fine Arts Radio in Monroe, CT; and WAMC Northeast Public Radio in Albany, NY.

The Tanglewood broadcast season begins on Friday, July 8 at 7pm, when Charles Dutoit conducts Opening Night from the Koussevitzky Music Shed.The All-Italian program will include Rossini's "William Tell" Overture, Respighi's Pines of Rome, and excerpts from Bellini's Norma and Verdi's I Lombardi. The following night, Dutoit leads the spectacular Requiem by Hector Berlioz, with tenor Russell Thomas. Then on Sunday afternoon, July 10, violinist Joshua Bell joins Miguel Harth-Bedoya and the BSO to perform Max Bruch’s "Scottish Fantasy." The program also features Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Jennifer Higdon’s Loco and Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 6, the “Pathétique.”
