BSO cancels Tanglewood for the first time in 75 years

Many scheduled artists will appear in an online version of the festival

In a major loss for the region’s summer performing arts landscape, the Boston Symphony Orchestra has canceled this year’s Tanglewood festival for the first time since World War II, due to concerns over the spread of COVID-19.

This year, in place of the usual 10 weeks densely packed with live events, the BSO will be offering an online version of the summer festival, with free and paid audio and video content beginning on July 1 via article at The Boston Globe.
