Boston Symphony Orchestra, Seiji Ozawa Hall at Tanglewood
Lenox, MA

Seiji Ozawa Hall is a 1200-seat concert hall, marked by a strong wood interior and surrounding balconies. In addition to serving as summer home to the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the building houses the Tanglewood Music Center’s fellowship program for 160 leading young musicians. Performances range from full symphony orchestras to recitalists. Influenced by Bill Rawn’s tour of 14 halls in Europe, the Hall has been recognized for its acoustic and architectural qualities. A survey of conductors and music critics ranked Seiji Ozawa Hall as follows:
• The 4th best American Concert Hall ever built
• The 2nd best American Concert Hall built in the last 50 years. Source: Leo Beranek, Concert Halls and Opera Houses, 2003.
