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.

What a fun break from the work a day week! My clients took me along with 24 other guests to see Styx play at the Schermerhorn with the Nashville Symphony! We had a great time and had our picture taken with Tommy Shaw, lead guitarist and singer. The Schermerhorn is a beautiful venue. When you have a chance - GO... More

We spent Valentine's Day in downtown Nashville and spent a wonderful evening watching and listening to the Nashville Symphony and the legendary Patti LaBelle!!! This facility is very beautiful and the concert hall was just wonderful. Really not a bad seat in the house but I guess the seating behind the stage would be less attractive if any are. The... More

This was our first time attending the symphony. My teenage daughter and I were very impressed with our seats, especially since we had purchased our tickets just 3 hours prior. I would try to get the private box seats next time. I'd definitively return.

I was in town for business and saw that they had an Legend of Zelda Symphony in Orchestra- This venue is very beautiful on the inside and sound quality is impeccable. The valet service is very reasonable and the staff was very helpful.

This Symphony hall is small but really is a very elegant space. Seating is comfortable with a good view from most. I would say though that it could be confusing the first time you visit. You have to enter from different levels and you may be directed all over the place before you find your section.

The music and singing was awesome. We sat in back orchestra seats and had a great view. The acoustics were great and clear. It was perfect gift to give my wife for new years eve. I'll go back again. The symphony center is first class in decoration inside and out. Yet, you can dress casual or over the top. The... More
