After surviving the big flood and the challenging debt restructuring, the Symphony Center keeps standing as one of the (unfortunately not that well known) pillars of the Nashville music scene. From the Grammy winning Nashville Symphony Orchestra, performing crowd pleasers and contemporary pieces, to well presented Rock, Jazz and other music shows, there is never a wasted night at the...

Treat yourself to an evening. All seats are great and a variety of events sure to please any concert goer. Dress is up or down for pops and usually up for symphony. Enjoy

Good place for attending to a performance. Good lights, acoustic seemed nice also. Lots of seats on the sides, at a higher level, brings one to the feeling he's leaning over the performer's shoulder.

A lot of folks in the deep south can't imagine themselves at a Symphony Hall - even with it's weird name the Schermerhorn is different. The packages - the stars - great value and great music. There's something for everyone!

The Schermerhorn Symphony Center is one of my favorite places in Nashville to visit. The music is so beautiful, that it just flows throughout the auditorium. Christmas specials are my favorites.

When you first walk into the Schermerhorn you will be taken back at the architecture. It is like walking back in time but it is not old. So beautiful! It is a most intimate venue. So the feeling is like you are at a private convert. I have been there many times. Each time sitting in the floor section from... More

Schermerhorn has excellent sound for the Nashville Symphony, which is a great symphony for a medium-size city. Schermerhorn is a beautiful building, well maintained with comfortable seating. A coffee-shop type restaurant and two full-service bars are available. Great acoustics!

I always have beautiful experiences when attending the Schermerhorn... top-notch staff, beautiful, opulent, clean facility, and just a wonderful place to go and hear classical music as well as some contemporary artists and shows.

It is a beautiful place to come and enjoy an evening of culture. We enjoyed watching the Phantom of the Opera while the organist played.

The Schermerhorn Symphony Center is a beautiful symphony hall. The acoustics are outstanding, with great care taken to avoid any outside city noises disturbing a performance. The setting is lovely, the seating is such that no seat in the house is bad, and an experience here will be one to remember.
