Festival Story:

For nearly 30 years, the Festival of Contemporary Music was commonly called the Fromm Festival in reference to the support of the late Paul Fromm, who founded the Harvard University-based Fromm Music Foundation in 1954. In 1992, the Foundation instituted an annual Paul Fromm Concert in cooperation with the Tanglewood Music Center, which enables a performance and residency by a visiting soloist or ensemble, or allows the TMC to bring guest artists to Tanglewood to participate with Fellows in a special performance.
