Train returns to Tanglewood this August, one act of many diverse ones coming to Lenox this summer.

Whether you enjoy the pristine lawns for BYO picnics, or prefer the proximity to the musicians in the Shed or in Ozawa Hall, Tanglewood, in all its incarnations, is an informal, yet breathtaking, place to relax and enjoy music of all kinds in the most bucolic setting imaginable.

What makes Tanglewood such a great festival? In a word, it’s all about diversity.

Just about all of the major genres of classical music are offered: from solo recitals to lush chamber music; from symphonic music to choral/orchestral masterpieces and opera in concert. No other music festival

Jasper Johns' 'Target,' oil and collage on canvas

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — It may be hard for the untrained eye to see much of a connection between Renoir and Rothko.

But there is an artistic lineage that connects 19th Century French Impressionists and 20th Century Abstract Impressionists.
