The ensemble performs year-round with the Boston Symphony and Boston Pops, both at Symphony Hall in Boston and at the summer festival in Tanglewood. It has performed with the BSO on tour in Hong Kong and Japan, and on two European tours, also giving a cappella concerts of its own on those two occasions. The TFC has made dozens of recordings with the BSO and Boston Pops, with Seiji Ozawa, Bernard Haitink, James Levine, Leonard Bernstein, Sir Colin Davis, Keith Lockhart, and John Williams.

Originally formed under the joint sponsorship of Boston University and the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the all-volunteer Tanglewood Festival Chorus was established by its founding conductor, the late John Oliver, who retired at the end of the 2015 Tanglewood season.
