A billet-doux to Friday.  The Berkshires beckon.  Lenox, in particular.

A fiercely popular place to fribble the day away. In addition to the bookstore, cafes, wineshop, restaurants, leafy lanes, library  ~and, oh, the views! ~ there’s Tanglewood.

The grounds are pleasure-dome dazzling. Sigh-worthy lawns, mossy-soft music in the air.

The show?  A Fan-my-brow Fabulous Foursome.

At the meet-and-greet, the Piano Guys are introduced to Golf Guy and me. The Other Guy?  Leonard Bernstein.

Their story is a miracle.  Just like their music.  They are a bunch of ordinary guys that play classically-influenced instrumental music in profusely cool videos at spectacular places. And it all started in a piano store in St. George, Utah.  (I wish I knew that when I was driving through it.)

 

Waggish, jocular, rompish singer/storytellers. The Piano Guys. You’ll get a bang for your click here….. 

 

 

…and here…

 

…and here… 

..and especially here.

 

 

Your day just got better too, didn’t it?

  1. Love Lenox! I grew up in western Massachusetts along the VT border. We sometimes used to get to go down to concerts at Tanglewood or would go to open rehearsal on Saturday morning, which was fascinating. Now, my husband and I sometimes scoot to Lenox for a weekend getaway, though not usually during the summer.
