More Road Scholar Fine Art in the Berkshires

The second week of our Road Scholar program was titled "Tanglewood, Theatre, and Jacob's Pillow Dance."
We moved our domicile from Williamstown to Pittsfield just a few miles down the road where we were sheltered at the Crowne Plaza hotel in the center of town.  We visited Shakespeare and Company again, saw a dance performance at Jacob's Pillow, and saw a rehearsal and a performance at Tanglewood. 


Road Scholar Group enjoys the outdoor preview before a performance at Shakespeare and Company.




Here we are at Jacobs Pillow heading down for the afternoon free performance

Our classroom presentations always had vigorous participation.


Off to Tanglewood with our group.


The crowd gathers around the shed.

And here is the symbolic old Tanglewood Oak itself




This was a particularly fine week for content with strong lecturers on both music and theatre plus the total delight of having Martin Bookspan hit the nostalgia train with his recollections of over fifty years around the Boston Symphony.
