This Saturday, July 23, from noon to 7, the Berkshire branch of the , with the lead sponsorship of , hosts the free annualin Rev. Willard & Rosemary Durant Park, formerly Pitt Park, on Columbus Avenue in Pittsfield.

Last year, the day was so hot and sunny. I even enjoyed getting my blood pressure taken by Berkshire Health Systems because I could go into a cool trailer for a few minutes. They gave me a nice, blue tote bag as a memento and to carry around my day's stuff in.

The weather is predicted to be in the mid-80s with sun and clouds for this afternoon of barbecue and other homemade foods, a basketball tournament, a stage with live music and vendors like Grampy's Dog House

Tanglewood enters its third week, and the highlights abound. Performances of music by great Classical, Romantic and 20th Century composers, i.e. Mozart, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Sibelius, Dvorák and Vaughn Williams, take center stage, featuring outstanding examples of chamber and orchestral music by these iconic masters.

Why go? Add to the above the Festival of Contemporary music that contributes some modern-day spice to the mix and you have a week of future musical memories that define what Tanglewood is all about - the best of older and newly composed music.

And, if the offerings at Tanglewood aren’t enough to pique your musical interest, there are also outstanding

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Shire City Sessions concert series has moved to the Common.   Four shows will be played in July and August on Monday nights at the First Street park featuring an array of original bands with regional or national draw. The series in its second year; three concerts were held last year in the parking lot of Shire City Sanctuary.   "We had a great first season and I think using the parking lot at the church was something that just worked. But, it is also a lot of work to turn a parking lot into a concert venue and back to a parking lot in 24 hours and that was essentially what we were doing last year," Alan Bauman, owner of Compuworks and

While "The Secret Life of Pets" isn't quite "Lady and the Tramp" (1955), I've no problem mentioning the two kiddy flicks in the same sentence. Both are proof positive that you can learn a lot from the animals, especially the cartoon variety if they're as lovable as Max, a Jack Russell terrier voiced here by Louis C.K.

A contemporary variation of the iconic Tramp, who resisted domestication until romance curtailed his wanderlust, this Manhattanite is dedicated to hearth, condo and his master, Katie (Ellie Kemper).

When asked one morning by Gidget, the white Pomeranian next door who secretly loves him, if he had plans today, Max informs: "Yes, big, big

Tanglewood enters its second week of classical programming, with inspiring and thought-provoking concerts in the Shed and in Ozawa Hall. As always, diversity is the watchword: from an all-Mozart evening to Ives and Gershwin; from Beethoven and Tchaikovsky to the cutting-edge orchestra “The Knights” performing arrangements of Cat Stevens, The Troggs and Bob Dylan. And, as always, there’s heartfelt chamber music: this week by Brahms and Alban Berg.

In New Lebanon, N.Y., at Tannery Pond, there’s a not-to-be-missed evening of solo piano music (Schubert, Franck, Liszt and Hough), to be performed by MacArthur (‘genius-award’) Fellow-virtuoso pianist/composer

David Yates, director of several "Harry Potter" films, does a respectable job of both preserving and translating for contemporary tastes "The Legend of Tarzan." Although a tad methodical, its high-minded social conscience, solid acting performances and scintillating integration of special effects make up for its occasionally slow pace.

Alexander Skarsgard, handsome, built to rumble and adept at varying grimaces, is a fine King of the Jungle ... an extraordinary presence who can illustriously switch from human to ape mode whenever the survival instinct deems necessary.

This latest permutation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' literary hero can glide through the trees with
