Daniel Shapiro, world-renowned expert on negotiation and conflict resolution, founding director of the Harvard International Negotiation Program, and bestselling author of “Negotiating the Nonnegotiable” will be speaking on Saturday, August 24 at 5 p.m. at the Tanglewood Learning Institute’s Big Idea Event at Ozawa Hall in Lenox, Massachusetts.

This keynote speech also features cellist Maya Beiser and coincides with the August 25 performances of Schoenberg’s “Peace on Earth” featuring the Tanglewood Festival Chorus conducted by James Burton, and Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony which culminates in the choral movement popularly known as the “Ode to Joy.”

Composed more than 80 years apart, the two works present powerfully contrasting portraits of protest, freedom, peace, and shared humanity.
