The Linde Center for Music and Learning on the Tanglewood campus in Lenox, MA is located in the idyllic Berkshires. It includes three rehearsal buildings, with the largest of the three providing a performance space, connected to a café. A winding pathway between the buildings is thoughtfully lit by off-center downlights, reducing light spill to the outdoor performance area.  Dimmable exterior lighting allows for ambient levels during concerts, while reducing light trespass for neighbors. This comfortable outdoor concert venue is a perfect place to bring a blanket and picnic basket and to enjoy an evening of lovely music.
