Summer is coming and so are Sundays at Tanglewood, the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. You don’t
have to love classical music (but it helps) or to love a gourmet picnic at a beautiful setting in the Berkshires (but it helps), but if you might like the combination, then join our group this summer. Two trips are planned for First Church this summer: July 15 and August 19.
Our scouting team heads up there early enough to reserve a great spot under a magnificent tree. Soon the rest of the group starts to fill in (around 12:30 pm), snacks come out, wine is poured and the wonderful Sunday afternoon is launched. Then the pot luck meal is revealed and the feast is shared. The maestro raises his baton at 2:30 pm to start the concert.
August 19: Yo Yo Ma all afternoon: Bernstein, John Williams, Bartok.
As the dates approach, watch the church newsletter for details.
