This building is beautiful, both inside and out. The seats are comfortable, I don't think there's a bad seat in the house! I highly recommend going to a concert here, particularly a symphonic performance!

It's fairly new, but it looks like a historic landmark, inside and out. This is one of my favorite venues anywhere. Tonight's performance was ABBA the Concert. Every seat is great (especially the box seats). The sound is great. The hall is beautiful. No matter what type of music you like, it eventually comes here.

This is a wonderful building, albeit with many steps on the inside. We go most often to hear performances by the Nashville Symphony Orchestra; the evening is always a treat. The building is used for a very wide variety of performances and is a very real asset to the community.

I attended the symphony for a day performance and was blown away by the music as well as the building itself. The whole experience was an absolute delight. While Nashville is know as Music City, one typically limits this to country music. With the extreme talents displayed within the symphony, this should be widened. I was so impressed by event,...

Absolutely wonderful concert experience. I was leary about bringing my "non-musical" wife with me as it was to be her first time going to a symphony. Needless to say, she was thoroughly impressed with the orchestra experience. The was a one hour discussion session before the concert where we got to listen to the conductor give us details of the...

Beautiful on the inside and the outside. Grabbed a quick bite to eat inside at the deli and had a glass of wine before the concert. Very helpful staff

Nothing can replaced the experience of a live music performance... Nashville Symphony is a world class orchestra, multiple Grammy Award orchestra and Top of the world conductor! If you are in town, don't hesitate to spend the evening at one of the many events- classical, pops or jazz concerts...

What a surprise, we bought tickets to the symphony on line and got an email igniting us to a jazz happy hour...it was really laid back and the food was local and interesting but a tad expensive...$12 for two tacos? The wine however was reasonable. Also don't miss they're concert talk if there is one, it was fascinating, however, we... More

We have attended two performances lately and the 40's musical in February and Emanuel Ax over Easter are prime examples of the variety on the Symphony offerings. From boogie woogie and light- hearted memories of WW2 to Mozart by a world class pianist, this orchestra and choice of seating are worth an evening.
