According to the National Weather Service, Hurricane Irene will be sitting directly atop Berkshire County at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday Afternoon. We’re talking about a 75 mph wind and torrential rain slamming into Tanglewood’s Koussevitzky Music Shed.
And what about the 2:30 concert on Sunday?
The concert is on. “The musicians will be playing, so use your tickets or lose them.” (Cancelled at 11:10 a.m. Saturday. Look under the fold for some interesting posts placed on the BSO Facebook page, including “The BSO will not cancel due to weather.” – BSO post Thursday at 11:32 a.m.)
Nice to know that Lenox is exempt from the governor’s state of emergency.
