Tanglewood enters its third week, and the highlights are many; indeed, every concert will be memorable. The legendary Emerson String Quartet present a musico-theatric "Russian Fantasy," followed by an all-Schubert evening. Deeply moving symphonies by Bernstein and Tchaikovsky ensue, with heroic piano concertos by Beethoven and Prokofiev to follow. Orchestral masterworks by Kernis, Britten and Sibelius, and a celebration of early-20th century French vocal music conclude this week's listing of stellar performances of great and amazingly diverse musical offerings.

If, for whatever inexplicable reason the bounteous musical fare at Tanglewood isn't enough to pique your

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The city of North Adams has received a $25,000 matching MassDevelopment grant through the Commonwealth Places program to support the build out of improvements to historic Eagle Street.

To receive the grant, NESI worked with Patronicity, a community project based crowdfunding portal, to raise the necessary $25,000. The group used creative approaches such as a hot dog eating competition, a 48-hour dollar-for-dollar match, and local business support to

It's here: the summer concert season is upon us. With programs across the region, concertgoers will have a wide range of classical music to enjoy in venues large and small: from solo piano and orchestral to opera and musical theater in concert; from chamber music to a thrilling Bach Brandenburg Concerto. 

This week I'll showcase three presenters that offer the best in chamber music, symphonic music, opera and musical theater.

Taconic Music

I recently had the opportunity to speak with Ariel Rudiakov and Joana Genova-Rudiakov, co-founders and co-artistic directors of Taconic Music, the stimulating and innovative Manchester, Vt.-based music presenter, about their new concert

The mountain peaks are made from connected triangles. Sambruce began assembling the pieces in April for the mid-June opening. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Artist Wesley Sambruce brings his reflections on the Hoosac Tunnel to life in Kidspace with an interactive sculpture that asks children and adults alike to explore courage.   Lofted in Kidspace in the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, Sambruce built a portal into another world. Flipping back the tunnel's heavy veil opens to meandering pathways paved with poetry, crawlways dropping off into unexplored caverns and open vestibules with hanging tendrils — all inspired by the 4.75-mile Hoosac

There isn't any doubt what writer Mike White had in mind when he penned "Beatriz at Dinner."   His insightful parable, brought to life by Miguel Arteta's skillful direction and a superb cast starring Salma Hayek in the title role, takes place at the very crux of humanity's social ills.   Expect diagnosis, but alas, no cure. You see, beneath the dramatic layers, both disingenuously polite and blatantly hateful, it's about the money. As my rich big sister Ann says, "It's always about the money, especially if they say it's not about the money."   Oh, it wasn't much different before we invented the stuff. Back then, the love of

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Berkshire Art Museum enters its fourth summer season by taking up selective space.
