For some reason you may not get to go to see the Boston Symphony Orchestra, well Tanglewood and the BSO have you covered.

There will be a Live video transmission of the BSO’s July 19 concert at Tanglewood aims to bring Tanglewood into the Pittsfield community and share one of the festival’s major performances with a wider group of Berkshire residents.

In a press release sent to me, it looks to be a fantastic night!

The evening will begin at 5 p.m. on the Pittsfield Common with pre-concert festivities taking place throughout the evening, including performances by the Eagles Community Band Brass Ensemble, performers from the Barrington Stage MTC Choral Group, and students from the Boston University Tanglewood Institute, as well as family-friendly activities offered by local organizations such as the Norman Rockwell Museum, Hancock Shaker Village, Berkshire Music School, and the Pittsfield YMCA.

The Boston Symphony Association of Volunteers will also host an Instrument Playground following the Eagles Community Band Brass Ensemble performance.

Audience members will also have an opportunity to enjoy casual summer fare from local on-site food vendors.

The performance, which will be transmitted onto a 15x27-foot screen on the Pittsfield Common, will begin with welcoming comments from a BSO musician and feature BSO Music Director Andris Nelsons leading the orchestra in music of Betsy Jolas, Debussy, and Ravel, as well as Saint-Saëns’s Cello Concerto No. 1 with soloist Gautier Capuçon.
