Tanglewood in the City, Pittsfield: Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony

Held again at the First Street Common, this year's event will reprise last summer's Tanglewood performance of one of the world's most beloved pieces of classical music: Beethoven's Ninth Symphony.

Pittsfield — On Friday, Aug. 28, for the second consecutive year, Mill Town Capital is sponsoring the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s presentation of Tanglewood in the City, a high-definition musical presentation for the Pittsfield community. Held again at the First Street Common, this year’s event will reprise last summer’s Tanglewood performance of one of the world’s most beloved pieces of classical music: Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. Giancarlo Guerrero conducts.

To allow for social distancing, four showings of Friday’s presentation will occur during the day, at 11 a.m., 2 p.m., 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 28 (rain date Sunday, Aug. 30) and are limited to 50 persons per viewing. That’s why you need to give your first and second choice of screening times and the number of people in your group when you register at events@milltowncapital.com. You’ll need to wear a face mask at the event and sit in marked-off areas.

The presentation will also be available online until Sunday, Aug. 30, to the first 1,000 people who request access at events@milltowncapital.com.

Admission to Tanglewood in the City is free to registered attendees.
