Brightcove Inc. (NASDAQ: BCOV), the world´s video technology platform, has announced its video technology will be powering the Tanglewood 2020 Online Festival, the company said.
Tanglewood, located in the scenic Berkshire Hills of western Massachusetts, has been the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra (BSO) since 1937, offering live classical music performances to its audiences every summer.
This year, due to the impact of COVID-19, the BSO will offer Tanglewood performances, both new and retrospective, as online events only.
For this extraordinary undertaking, the BSO will leverage Brightcove´s video technology to deliver an array of streamed video content. The new musical performances, which will be recorded at Tanglewood´s Linde Center to capture the beauty and spirit of the venue´s grounds, will feature artists and programs of the originally announced 2020 season.
Tanglewood is offering both free and paid content to its audiences. Tiered streaming packages are available for purchase at www.tanglewood.org.
Because Tanglewood is a mainstay of the Berkshire region and a beloved cultural attraction, the Boston Symphony Orchestra wanted to continue offering its audiences the music that they look forward to every year. Most significantly, the orchestra wanted to stay connected with its community despite unprecedented events that prevented it from presenting the festival as it has for more than 80 years. Leveraging Brightcove´s video technology, the BSO is able to stream high-quality, reliable video content to viewers, without compromising the overall musical experience that audiences have grown to love.
Below are a few of the artists that Tanglewood audiences can expect to see online throughout July and August. The full calendar inclusive of all performances can be found on the Tanglewood website.
