Bill Barclay returns to Tanglewood for a Concert Theatre Works development project in partnership with the Tanglewood Learning Institute.

The object of his creative attention for "Full Tilt" this summer is Joseph Bologne, the Chevalier de Saint-Georges. Bologne was a decorated military officer, champion swordsman, acclaimed violinist, composer, and conductor, a true Renaissance man of the Classical period and an artist of color in 18th-century France.

Director of Music for Shakespeare’s Globe, Bill Barclay’s original music has been performed across the United States, around the world, for President Obama, the British Royal Family, the Olympic Torch, at the UN, in Buckingham Palace, and in refugee camps in Jordan and Calais. He is the founder of the new label Globe Music.

Steve Carver

Long-time Tanglewood piano technician Steve Carver will be featured in a Tanglewood Learning Institute "Meet the Makers" event on Monday afternoon at 1:30 in the Linde Center.

At the event, Carver will give an in-depth look at the art and science of keeping concert instruments in high-performing condition. Attendees can enjoy a sneak peek at the engineering and artistry of Steinway Spirio — the legendary instrument maker’s newest invention and the world’s finest high-resolution player piano.

Carver recently retired from his position of manager of piano maintenance and chief piano technician at The Juilliard School. He has also been the chief concert technician for the Tanglewood Music Festival for ten years and was previously a concert technician at the Aspen Music Festival and School and the Chautauqua Institution.

The Linde Center for Music and Learning is designed by William Rawn Associates Architects, led by William Rawn and Cliff Gayley, and is the largest building project at Tanglewood in 25 years, since the construction of Ozawa Hall, which was also designed by William Rawn Associates.

The $33 million-dollar Linde Center for Music and Learning at Tanglewood adds 6,000 new square feet of performance and rehearsal space and is designed to play a key role in establishing Tanglewood as an all-season facility, with Tanglewood Learning Institute programming, event rentals, and concert use by the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

Tanglewood’s major new four-building multi-use complex for performance and learning will be named the Linde Center for Music and Learning in recognition of leadership gifts made by Joyce and Edward H. Linde and their family.

Construction of the new facilities will be completed early this year ahead of a June 2019 opening.

The Linde Center will dramatically increase the learning and rehearsal space for the Tanglewood Music Center and will serve as a home to the Tanglewood Learning Institute’s programming - a new wide-ranging initiative of dynamic, engaging, and thought-provoking activities launching in summer 2019.

These new buildings will be Tanglewood’s first year-round facilities available for event and performance use by the BSO and TLI, Berkshire community, and beyond. Mark Volpe is the President and CEO of The Boston Symphony.
