Tanglewood opens its classical season this week, with diverse and stimulating programming of classical and modern chamber and orchestral masterworks spanning three centuries, featuring Boston Symphony Conductor Andris Nelsons and the brilliant pianist Lang Lang. There’s diverse musical fare, from Mozart, Brahms and Richard Strauss to Shostakovich, Stravinsky and Leonard Bernstein.

For intimate and brilliantly performed chamber music, head north on Route 7 to Manchester, Vt., for Taconic Music. Finally, consider spectacular Sevenars Concerts in Worthington, Mass. Their celebratory 50th anniversary seven-week festival season opens on July 8.

There’s so much music to experience

"Hannah and Her Sisters" had a scene like this. So did many other movies.

Imagine a party in a New York City home. Two former musical performers are urged by the gathering to relive their old hits. Everyone gathers around the piano and off the performers go – amidst "oohs" and "ahhs" in recognition as an old song begins and polite applause as it ends. Then on to the next song.

"Coming Back Like A Song," a new play about Irving Berlin, Harold Arlen and Jimmy Van Heusen that just opened at the Berkshire Theatre Group’s Fitzpatrick Main Stage, is a lot like the above scene only the composers themselves are the performers. The play has a few

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — This was the seventh year new artwork by Drury High School students has been installed on the side of the Cascade School Supplies building on Brown Street.

"Again we stand here in awe," Cascade President Pete Cote said Monday during a brief ceremony.

This was the first year that Mayor Thomas Bernard was on hand during the ceremony to see the art and a handful of the artists first-hand.

"It's incredible," Bernard said.

And this was the last year that Drury High art teacher Phoebe Pepper posed with the students whom she shepherded through the process and accepted the annual monetary donation from Cascade, which also donates the wood

I doubt I've ever said this in a review, so here goes: "Incredibles 2," an intelligently humorous follow-up to the 2004 original, is good fun for the entire family. There, said it.   Just don't let the opportunity for bonding among parents, children and crotchety Aunt Edna, if you deign to charitably invite her, bankrupt the clan. While only an anecdotal bit of accounting, I estimate that the mom two rows in front of me spent at least 21 minutes and about $57.25 going back and forth to the concession stand fetching cheese nachos et al for her flock of five before finally sitting down. Harrumph!   It boggles the mind, but I kind of get it: a phylum of moviegoer

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Berkshire Museum has selected nine more works of art to be sold toward its goal of $55 million that museum officials say is required to secure the institution's future.    Thirteen pieces have been sold by auction or private sale. Sotheby's will be working with the museum to find private sales for seven more works and will auction two in September.    The century-old museum's decision to deaccession parts of its 40,000-piece collection was announced almost a year ago to fund a $60 million plan to modernize and update the aging institution and develop an endowment to continue its operations. Without the funds, officials say the

It is unfortunate. But it only makes complete sense that Paul Schrader's dark and starkly truthful "First Reformed" will be one of 2018's most important movies. Whether or not you like its profoundly intense take on current events and how that intersects with the crisis of conscience Ethan Hawke's Reverend Ernst Toller is experiencing, the film is representative of its time.   Unlike in the Great Depression, when cheerful movies tried to paste things over until happy times were here again, this intense, artistic muckrake dives headlong into the tribulation. But expect no answers as we witness Reverend Toller navigate the whims, wiles and sometimes disingenuous
