Last month, WBUR's Circle Round podcast joined Boston Symphony Orchestra at Tanglewood for a special live event. From December 23 - January 22, you can watch the event on demand on the BSO NOW concert stream.

Host Rebecca Sheir is joined on stage at the Linde Center for Music and Learning by a quartet of BSO musicians (second violinist Bonnie Bewick, piccolo player Cindy Meyers, bassoonist Suzanne Nelsen and horn player Rachel Childers), along with actors Karen Allen (“Raiders of the Lost Ark”), Megan Boone (“The Blacklist”), Scott Cohen (“Gilmore Girls”), Marielle Heller (“The Queen’s Gambit”) and Peter Riegert (“Crossing Delancey”), as they record three new Circle Round stories: “Treasure Mountain,” a tale from China about the true riches in life; “Lookalike Falls,” a legend from Mexico about wisdom, folly, and everything in between; and “The Bags of Seeds,” a Vietnamese origin story about how a very important grain first came to earth.

This event is made possible with support from Bamboo Learning, creator of voice-based apps that bring joyful reading and mastery of comprehension to children ages 5 to 12, and Cooper The Dog Books, inspiring conversations about friendship, diversity, and kindness to people and animals.
