Not the typical symphony fan but this venue is awe inspiring. A must see and experience. The location lets you explore downtown and experience the different music.

The whole process from car parking by valets, uniformed ticket takers and the bar was memorable. We saw the band Foreignor and all in all it was a perfect experience. Very clean, orderly and safe. Highly recommended.

The music, the venue, the atmosphere. I have attended several shows at the Schermerhorn and have yet to be disappointed. I really like the fact that they mix up the entertainment, so I can enjoy a wide variety of music in such a beautiful setting. The crowd is always respectful and enjoyable to be around while enjoying the show which... More

The sound was horrible at this much anticipated event. The best part of the evening, was the Symphony Orchestra prelude to the vocal group. Once they came on, the sound system seemed to be out of sync with the voices. Someone who seemed familiar with the place said they hadn't checked the sound system before the show. I'd recommend thinking... More

The Schermerhorn is a beautiful addition to my native Nashville. I have been to two totally different events this past week, and were delighted at both. One cannot complain as variety of music genres are offered, and morning events for those unable to get out at night. West Side Story, my favorite musical was on an enormous big screen and... More

It is lovely and so classy. Too bad people don't always dress or act the same. This would be more typical on nights that a comedian may perform. The Symphony Center is a great dress-up- and- feel- special place to go. Love it!

We've been to Schermerhorn twice - once for a jazz concert and once for a country artist performance. The audio system was not balanced well for the country group and vocals were nearly impossible to make out - key part of country music! All the higher frequencies were directed to the speaker array high over the stage and those are... More

Magnificent place. Staff was amazing, courteous, informed & committed to making our visit memorable. Spectacular architecture & a great performance. Would be a season ticket holder if I lived there. Great experience & great people. Should be at the top of anyone's list of places to see in Nashville.
