Tanglewood

Boston Symphony Orchestra’s annual summer music academy was the first leg of Rosendo’s UNESCO Fellowship tour from July 2 through August 12, 1956, fulfilling his dream of studying in the United States. This would be his first experience on the mainland of the U.S. He would later return and stay permanently.

These photographs illustrate his brief stay at Tanglewood Music Center, Massachusetts, and the interaction with and instruction from the internationally recognized resident artists.
