Boston Symphony Orchestra Hires Consigli to Build New Performance and Rehearsal Complex at Tanglewood Music Center



The Boston Symphony Orchestra has hired Consigli Construction Co., Inc. to build a brand new, four-building complex at the Tanglewood Music Center in Lenox. The new space will support the Center’s reputation as one of the premier music festivals in the world and will include a multi-use, multi-season four-building complex designed to support the performance and rehearsal activities of the Tanglewood Music Center (TMC).The complex will be the focal point of a new initiative, the Tanglewood Learning Institute (TLI), offering wide-ranging education and enrichment programs designed to enhance the patron experience. 

“Tanglewood’s new building complex represents a major milestone for the BSO as it furthers its commitment to the Tanglewood Music Center by providing a new state-of-the-art facility to match the extraordinary level of talent exhibited by the Fellows each summer,” said Mark Volpe, Managing Director of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. “In addition, the Tanglewood Learning Institute will introduce an exciting new venture by offering patrons an entirely new paradigm of education and enrichment programs, sure to expand the reach of the festival and bring welcome newcomers to the BSO’s famed summer home.”

“The opportunity to have a lasting impact on one of the world’s most influential institutions of culture is a humbling experience and a true honor,” said Anthony Consigli, CEO of Consigli. “We’re looking forward to building a state-of-the-art space for the entire Tanglewood community to enjoy for generations to come.”

Scheduled to open in summer 2019, the new building complex will be the largest building project at Tanglewood since the construction of Ozawa Hall built in 1994.

The largest building of Tanglewood’s new four-building complex will provide state-of-the-art space for rehearsal and concert activities accommodating an audience of up to 200; multi-media education and lecture programs with a seating capacity of up to 300; and a wide variety of social and dining events. 

Additional buildings include a 150-seat dining cafe, designed in part as a hub for visitors, TMC Fellows and Faculty, and TLI participants, and two smaller studios providing additional space for rehearsal, performance, educational, and social activities. Located on the Tanglewood grounds in close proximity to Ozawa Hall, this new highly sustainable building complex will be climate-controlled to accommodate use by the Berkshire community in the off-season.
