Doc Severinsen
Sean Turi

Grammy Award-winning Doc Severinsen has been celebrated as America’s favorite trumpet player for more than half a century. Welcomed into living rooms for nearly three decades as the leader of "The Tonight Show Orchestra," (with host Johnny Carson hailing him as ‘the greatest trumpet player in the world,’) his impeccable musicianship and charismatic presence still dazzles at 92 years old, with the iconic trumpeter performing his signature stylings of big band, pop, jazz, world, and classical standards, universally hailed as one of our national treasures.

He is playing three shows with his band The San Miguel 5 at Caffè Lena in Saratoga Springs, New York on August 23, 24, and 25.

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.
