Tanglewood Music Center, the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s acclaimed summer academy for advanced musical study, marks its 75th anniversary season in summer 2015, with special events and programming spotlighting the TMC’s past accomplishments.

The celebration, June 25 – August 16, will be rich and multifaceted, highlighted by more than 30 newly commissioned works, a performance of Mahler’s monumental Symphony No. 8 by the Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra under the direction of BSO Music Director Andris Nelsons as well as by many other concerts with the Boston Symphony and the Boston Pops orchestras. The 2015 festival will also feature two media projects designed to bring the TMC’s anniversary celebration to audiences far and wide: a free webcast of the Mahler 8 performance, with supplemental video about the TMC anniversary, and free weekly 75th anniversary music downloads, featuring some of the best of the TMC’s 75-year performance history, both to be made available at during summer 2015.

Many of the most renowned classical music figures of the 20th and 21st centuries – including Claudio Abbado, Leonard Bernstein, Aaron Copland, Lorin Maazel, Yo-Yo Ma, Zubin Mehta, Seiji Ozawa, Leontyne Price …- have passed through the TMC’s programs as Fellows or teacher/faculty since the academy’s founding in 1940 by Serge Koussevitzky.
