This week, Tanglewood continues its high energy 2016 classical programming season with a powerhouse, back-to-back pair of programs performed by the Boston Pops and guest artists the Australian Chamber Orchestra.

The "heavy hitters" are John Williams' "Film Night" – always an audience favorite and a high point of each year's Tanglewood offerings, and a unique concert by a visiting ensemble of intrepid Australians that replicates a 1920s-era Weimar Republic quasi-pops cabaret experience. What a pair! This is not your staid classical programming. Be there or be square.

Traditional Tanglewood listeners: not to fear; classical fare won't be lacking:

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — A reconnection between long-lost teen sweethearts has inspired a modern-day epistolary novel.

But rather than writing pages of snail-mail love letters, Adam Wolf and Sarah Ross in "Save the Last Dance" re-establish bonds through the swift and instantaneous communication of emails and texts.

Collaborators Eva Ungar Grudin and Eric Joseph used their own experiences as the jumping off point for this debut novel, which had a launch in June at Water Street Books.

"We went together up to 11th grade, and set a wedding date when we were 15," Grudin, a retired Williams College art history professor, recalled last week.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Growing up in Brooklyn, N.Y., Frank "Maurice" Savino loved the small Italian eateries, where the chef knew his name, what he liked, and always had something new on the menu.    When he moved to the Berkshires a decade ago, that intimate setting is something he missed. So last month, he opened up his own shop on North Street serving lunch, dinner, and to-go items all homemade that day and with a personal touch.   Brooklyn's Best intends to be exactly what the name the suggests — bringing the best Italian food from the New York City that Savino remembers as a child and that same vibe from those small

The short review for Woody Allen's "Café Society," if you'll pardon the slang, is, "He's still got it!" So now here's the longer version.

While the delightful, circa 1930s tale of a young man who leaves The Bronx for Hollywood in search of his raison d'etre and destiny isn't quite "Annie Hall" (1977), it's an entertaining addition to this national treasure's estimable body of work. It is witty, wise, poetic and, like most of the filmmaker's more recent films, reworks familiar topics with a storytelling art that elegantly synergizes styles from different eras of his career.

Of course the lead issue is love, with

With the arrival of August, we are at the height of the music festival season. Programs at Tanglewood offer a diverse and intriguing mix of solo piano music by two stellar virtuosi on consecutive evening recitals; the Boston Symphony performing a feast of Romantic fare: Dvorák, Liszt, Mahler, Brahms, Richard Strauss and also contemporary master John Adams; superstar cellist Yo-Yo Ma and his Silk Road Ensemble; and much more.

For additional options, head to Tannery Pond, in New Lebanon, N.Y., for the luminous Miro String Quartet and to Manchester, Vt., for no less than three (!) diverse musical offerings.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Berkshire County offers summer visitors a world-renowned symphony, Tony Award-winning theater and important works of art from the Renaissance to the contemporary.   The region truly has it all ... almost.   Actually, there is at least one hole in the county's arts scene, a hole that Jonathan Loy and Brian Garman are aiming to fill.   "Absolutely, the Berkshires are the most culturally rich place in the country," Loy said recently. "For there not to be opera here is unfortunate and maybe even a problem.   "Opera is an art form that deserves to be heard and seen and supported. By bringing fully produced opera back, what
