Weekend Highlights

Tanglewood Music Festival
On Friday, Herbert Blomstedt will lead the Boston Symphony Orchestra in an All-Mozart Program featuring Symphony No. 41, Jupiter and Emanuel Ax performs Piano Concerto No. 17 in G, K. 453. On Saturday, Blomstedt once again leads the BSO in Mozart’s Symphony No. 34, Bernstein’s Halil Nocturne for Flute and Orchestra, and Haydn’s Lord Nelson Mass.

Ventfort Hall Mansion and Gilded Age Museum
Ventfort is a Jacobean Revival-style mansion built in 1893 for Sarah Morgan, the sister of J. P. Morgan. Over the past 20 years, the mansion has been undergoing a massive restoration to bring it back to its former glory after falling into disrepair. The tour provides an intriguing look at what goes into an historic restoration and interesting stories of this property’s history.

One of the most beloved and respected art museums in the world and is known for its intimate galleries and stunning natural environment.
