Tanglewood Learning Institute announces fall/winter/spring schedule

In one fell swoop, Tanglewood became a year-round venue for the first time in its 82-year history when it launched the new Linde Center for Music and Learning in the summer of 2019.

Lenox — Just when you thought it was safe to go back into your hibernaculum and wait out the 250-odd days before the 2020 Tanglewood season begins, the Tanglewood Learning Institute announces its fall schedule. Tanglewood has a fall schedule? Yup.

This will take some getting used to.

In one fell swoop, Tanglewood became a year-round venue for the first time in its 82-year history when it launched the new Linde Center for Music and Learning in the summer of 2019. And since summer’s end, TLI’s director, Sue Elliott, has been working feverishly (i.e., around the clock) to give us plenty to talk about when it kicks off the season Thursday, Oct. 24, at 7:30 p.m. with the program “TLI Cinematics, Falling Down Stairs,” presented in collaboration with Berkshire International Film Festival and Jacob’s Pillow. (It’s a film documenting the collaboration between two legendary Tanglewood artists: cellist Yo-Yo Ma and choreographer Mark Morris.)

The first music performance of TLI’s fall season, on Oct. 27, features a program of Mozart, Schumann and Bruch, with Thomas Martin on clarinet, Michael Zaretsky on viola and Randy Hodgkinson on piano.

Here are a few highlights of the fall/winter season at TLI:

TLI announced its fall/winter/spring schedule Oct. 10, so details may be a bit sparse for a while. But watch their site for further announcements, because it seems likely that more programs will be added over the next few weeks and months. And besides, the Linde Center will also host, in addition to TLI programs, Berkshire county events throughout the fall, winter and spring seasons. This will include weddings, conferences, receptions, workshops, meetings, etc., not to mention concerts presented by local arts organizations.

AT THE TRIPLEX: Back to the biopics

If it’s so hard to get a biopic right, why try at all? The obvious answer is a cynical one: Biopics are perennial awards favorites and often an actor’s best bet to secure an Oscar.
