The Berkshires are home to several of the finest performing arts organizations and venues in the United States. For more than 75 years, many of the greatest musicians, conductors, and orchestras in the world have appeared in concert at the Tanglewood Music Center in Lenox, MA, which is the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Summer theatre got its start in the Berkshires at the Berkshire Theatre Festival in Stockbridge, MA was followed by the Williamstown Theatre Festival, then Shakespeare & Co. in Lenox, and now featuring Barrington Stage Company in Pittsfield, MA. Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival in Becket is the leading summer venue for all genres of dance. The Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center in Gt. Barrington, MA and the Colonial Theatre in Pittsfield present a variety of performing arts, as does MASS MoCA in North Adams, MA.
