Tanglewood is the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra (BSO). The Tanglewood Music Center is in western Massachusetts in the Berkshire Hills. There is a program which runs along with the BSO's performances, which includes summer schools for young musicians and classes and recitals with chamber and vocal music. They also have a jazz concert, a performance by the Boston Pops, some popular music shows, and young musicians' concerts.

The first summer concerts by the BSO in the Berkshires were given in 1936. The following winter, the Tappan family donated some land to create Tanglewood. In 1940 the music center began in earnest. In recent summers, more than 300,000 people attend Tanglewood for the concerts and masters' lessons.
