Fantastic venue for concert events. Small and intimate yet with wonderful acoustics. Performers really seem to enjoy playing in this beautiful location, with two recent talents - Craig Ferguson and Buddy Guy - specifically mentioning the Schermerhorn. Tough to say whether The Schermerhorn is better than the Ryman, but a close second if not a tie.

Arrange a tour, if possible, as this building has beautiful design details that you might miss. The Nashville Symphony is wonderful and offers a little of everything throughout the year, making it easy to find something you would enjoy.

There is something for everyone sometime during the year. Valet parking. Shows vary - Broadway plays to programs for children and young at heart.

The acoustics are superb from every seat in the house. We've had seats from the very top tier in the back to the first few rows in the front. We've even sat behind the stage, which is interesting but not the best option most of the time. Our favorite is when they exchange the seats for bistro tables and chairs.... More

I have been here to attend a number of symphony concerts by the Nashville Symphony. The acoustics are great and the ambiance is very classical. Parking is good across the street in a paid parking lot or at the Hilton underground garage.

We have been season ticket holders for classical concerts since the opening of the Schermerhorn Center and we also buy tickets for non-classical events as well. The seating in every section has been comfortable and the sight lines excellent. Wonderful acoustics. There are concerts nearly every week, so out of town visitors should check to see -- the offerings are... More

Love the feel of the Schermerhorn as well as the excellent acoustic. I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. Even if you aren't into classical music you will enjoy the elegance of the beautiful building. I enjoyed both.

Having attended dozens of concerts in this hall - from the Nashville Symphony to Elvis Costello to Hal Holbrook - I can say without a doubt that this is the BEST place to see a concert!! Period! This is truly a world-class venue; state of the art everything, gorgeous and comfortable. There really is not a bad seat in the... More

No matter what we have seen at the Schermerhorn, all performances have been wonderful - although our favorites have been the Boston Pops. The sound is absolutely terrific.

Great date night! I enjoyed the Nashville Symphony performance. I love the classics, but they perform modern and fun pieces to. The Symphony Center is located just a block off Broadway and the City Center. With an eight o'clock performance time we had plenty of time for dinner before and drinks after.
