Tanglewood—the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra in the Berkshire Hills of western Massachusetts—held its Opening Night Gala on Friday, July 8, 2016.

The concert kicked off with Maurice Ravel’sAlborada del gracioso, followed by Camille Saint-Saëns’s Violin Concerto No. 3 and Sergei Prokofiev’s Symphony No. 5.

 

A post-concert reception was held at Highwood Manor House, with Lacombe, Bell, and various BSO musicians in attendance.

 

The gala was co-chaired by Gregory E. Bulger and Richard J. Dix of Otis and Dover, Mass., and Lina S. Plantilla, M.D. and Eduardo R. Plantilla, M.D. of New York, N.Y.
