The Boston Symphony Orchestra is unveiling a sculpture of its longtime music director today at the orchestra’s summer home at Tanglewood. Koussevitzky served as the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s music director from 1924 until 1949, the second-longest tenure in its history. He founded Tanglewood in 1937 and the Tanglewood Music Center, the BSO’s influential summer music academy, in 1940.

Besides sculptures of Aaron Copland and Leonard Bernstein the Koussevitzky sculpture is the third in a series of sculptures created by Penelope Jencks for permanent display throughout the Tanglewood center.
