Close Encounters With Music’s 20th Season Roars to a Close

Rural Intelligence Parties and Openings Fiona Breslin reports from Lenox.
Close Encounters With Music closed its 20th season on Saturday, June 2, with a performance at Tanglewood’s Seiji Ozawa Hall called The Roaring Twenties: Berlin, Paris, and New York. This theme carried over into the evening as CEWM supporters gathered at the Gateways Inn for a celebration that harked back to the Gatsby era. Jackets and bowties were all the rage among performers, composers, and friends of CEWM (such as Amala Levine, cellist Yehuda Hanani, and Eric Levine left) who trickled in to the dimly-lit venue. Wine was poured from behind the old piano bar and guests either took their meal in the formal dining room, or lounged on velvet couches, where they toasted the night’s music, the performers, and the culmination of a successful 20th anniversary season for CEWM.
