The Tanglewood Jazz Festival’s Grande Dame

The incomparable Marian McPartland appears at Tanglewood Saturday

Although she’s not a singer, jazz pianist Marian McPartland‘s distintive Continental voice is as famous as her musicianship. As the host of Piano Jazz on NPR since 1979, McPartland interviews and scats with other legendary musicians every week. She returns to Tanglewood on Saturday, August 30,  to celebrate her 90th birthday and to tape her radio show with guests Nnenna Feelon, Mulgrew Miller and Spencer Day. If you took our advice back in February, you have tickets for the sold-out 2 PM show in Seiji Ozawa Hall.  If you don’t have seats inside, you can still hear and watch the show from the lawn if you buy a Tanglewood Jazz Festival day pass ($33.)

Happy Birthday, Marian, and many happy returns!

The Tanglewood Jazz Festival
Lenox, MA
August 29 - 31
