At Trinity Church, we are very happy to be part of the rich summer musical tradition of the Berkshires. Throughout the summer, we host musical events by two wonderful organizations – the Boston University Tanglewood Institute and the Curtisville Consortium.

The Boston University Tanglewood Institute (BUTI on our calendar) is a premier summer training program for aspiring high school-age musicians. Under the guidance of distinguished professionals, and in the presence of the Boston Symphony Orchestra (BSO), young people devote themselves to an artistic experience without parallel. The high artistic standards, rich culture of learning, and diverse programs make BUTI a unique opportunity for young artists, a starting point on the path to a future in classical music. All performances are free and open to the public.

The Curtisville Consortium, now in its 48th year, was founded by Boston Symphony members and family and has continued over the years to include such musicians in its membership. The original and continuing intent is to provide audiences with an opportunity to hear chamber music – up close and personal. For more information about tickets, please see the Curtisville Consortium website.
