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.

5 for the beauty of the venue but 1 for service. Walked past it several times as I enjoyed the sights of Nashville. Just wish I could have experienced the show that I had planned for some months - was given 2 days notice only that the Cassandra Wilson show was being postponed but no other explanation.

I was surprised to walk into this old wold architecture, with sculptures and water fountains, pedestrian plaza and an open courtyard. Beautiful Building. I was such a nice sunny spring morning, that I finished my coffee in the courtyard and enjoyed a peaceful weekend morning.

My husband and I have been season ticket holders to the Pops Symphony at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center since it opened its doors - approximately 9 years ago. We drive from southern Kentucky every month during the season to attend the events and it is well worth the drive. It has been one of the best investments that we have... More

My daughter and I ventured to Nashville for a mini vacation. Since my daughter is a french horn player, we naturally wanted to visit the symphony. They were playing Mahler's Ninth. The venue was amazingly beautiful. But that wasn't even a testament to the symphony. They played beautifully and passionately. I could FEEL the notes being played. A well, done... More

Our first visit here was on Valentine's Day to see "String of Pearls" big band. We sat center in the balcony. Seats were great, but next time we want to sit a little closer. We enjoyed the show. We received an email this week with upcoming concerts and already have 3-4 more picked out that we'd like to go to.... More

We went to see the Styx show on Friday night. The symphony was supposed to play along with them, but due to the ice storm they were well advised to stay home. Nonetheless, Styx put on a wonderful show and because many patrons didn't come out for the show, there was plenty of good seating and the folks in charge... More

So glad to see they are using this beautiful symphony hall for different types of concerts. There are no bad seats and just being there makes you feel such appreciation for such a magnificent structure.
