When my wife and I recently visited her parents, she ran across a tee shirt she bought at one of her first concert experiences. It's one of those '70s era "athletic" shirts with three-quarter length sleeves and features a quite long-haired James Taylor. I guess that clearly makes her part of the target audience for our broadcast on Aug. 30, and I hope you can tune in, too (don't worry, no vintage tees required). JT will be on stage with the Boston Pops and John Williams, and the seats in the Koussevitzky Music Shed are SOLD OUT. So even if you were thinking about doing a reverse "Stockbridge to Boston" to catch it, lawn tickets are the only option. Nothing wrong with that, but you can also tune in at 2pm on 89.7-FM and All-Classical WGBH on the internet to hear the concert live. And to learn more about James Taylor's connection to Tanglewood and the BSO, check out Geoff Edgers's piece in the Boston Globe.
