A long time U2 fan, I couldn't have asked for better renditions of the songs, and by the end of the night, we were all up dancing in the aisles! Not too pricey, and... More

Beautiful building and great acoustics--saw a Lady Antebellum concert here. Don't know whether you can tour when there is not a show, but it would be worth a visit.

We got to see Pink Martini and what a treat it was. Pink Martini was amazing and the symphony was wonderful. The building is beautiful and the sound is amazing. I highly recommend taking in a concert at the Schermerhorn. Nashville is blessed with so many great places to see a concert.

Our recent visit to hear the Bach Brandenburg Concerti was wonderful! It was our second visit and we were not disappointed. The little bistro where you can get a sandwich and drink (beer or wine, included) is nice to curb the dinner munchies for a Real Dinner after the concert at one of the many nice restaurants close by.

We truly enjoyed the Frankie Valli concert held at this beautiful venue. The accompaniment of the Nashville Symphony added so much to the musical talent we witnessed that night!

Nashville is a music town and depending on what style of music you are into the venue will be different. If your looking for something classy where you can dress up (although there is not a strict dress code and you can come pretty much as you wish) and be in an environment where young and old alike are quiet...

It's a beautiful building and the sound is incredible. Not a bad seat in the house. We sat on the floor but I think it would be cool to sit behind the orchestra. Next time!!

we took the free docent guided tour and learned so much about the construction and use of this building. On our next visit to Nashville we plan to attend a performance there to relish in the acoustic design. Check at the front desk for tour days and times - it is volunteer docents so it is not held every day.
