Tanglewood,Tanglewood Music Center | UssPost:Tanglewood is known as a music venue and an estate in Stockbridge and Lenox. It is also known as the home of Tanglewood Jazz Festival and Tanglewood Music Festival that are annual festival of the summer. It is also known as the summer home of “Boston Symphony Orchestra since 1937. Nathaniel Hawthorne was the person to whom the name of Tanglewood was given. He was a well-known author of the United States.

A small cottage was rented by the Hawthorne in the month of March in the local area on the suggestion of William Ticknor (his publisher). This cottage was rented from the William Aspinwall Tappan. “Tanglewood Tales” was written by the Hawthorne while staying at the cottage in 1853 which was an effort of re-writing a Greek tradition for girls and boys.

The cottage was named as “Tanglewood” by the owner in the memories of the book and soon after the name was copied by the Tappan family for their nearby summer estate. When the first concert was given by Boston Symphony Orchestra in the Berkshires in 1936, it is considered as the tracing point of the concerts of Tanglewood.

The series of the first three concerts of Tanglewood was held for around 15,000 people under tent. Performances have been given by the Boston Symphony Orchestra in the Koussevitzky Music Shed consecutively every summer since inception but they could not perform from 1942 to 1945. This gap in their performance in the Koussevitzky Music Shed was just because the concerts were cancelled by the Trustees due to the World War II.
