Tanglewood Announces 2013 Concert Season

We have yet to flip the calendar over to the final month of 2012, but the folks at Tanglewood in Lenox have already made their initial announcements for their 2013 summer concert season.

Of course, while most of the classical season has been announced, only a few of the non-classical performances are listed on the current schedule, with more to come in the near future. But the pop shows that have been announced make for an already intriguing summer season that covers a wide range of entertainment from Steve Martin to Audra McDonald, from Michael Feinstein to Vince Gill, from Edie Brickell to the Monty Alexander Trio.

The biggest must-see event on the calendar, however, is the Goat Rodeo Show – featuring the genre-smashing, all-star line-up of cellist Yo-Yo Ma, bassist Edgar Meyer, mandolinist Chris Thile and fiddler Stuart Duncan with vocalist Aoife O’Donovan.

Tickets will go on sale to the general public at 10am on Sunday, January 27.

Go here for Tanglewood’s classical music schedule for 2013.

Here’s the schedule for some of the non-classical events worthy of note:
