We saw the Nashville Symphony with Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. The acoustics are just wonderful. We say nearly in the back of the balcony and could see and hear everything very, very well. The staff is very attentive and ready with answers. Seating is very comfortable. Restrooms are convenient. It's just short, easy walk from Broadway, several nice... More

This was my favorite stop on my visit to Nashville. The theater is absolutely breathtaking - soaring columns, marble floors, ornate chandeliers, all with amazing acoustics to boot! I sat in the balcony for Beethoven's Ninth and was in complete awe. My only complaint is that the person in front of me kept getting up to go to the bathroom... More

This was our first time to the symphony & fortunately it was also opening weekend for the 2015 season. The performance of Beethoven's Ninth was absolutely wonderful from the musical performance to the showmanship of the performers. We sat in the balcony which provided a great view and the acoustics are phenomenal. They serve beverages to enjoy during the performance... More

I have enjoyed the beauty of this building and the wonderful music performed in the hall and wish I could go every week ! Such a wide variety of concerts. From Ron Perlman to Chubby Checker with the incredible "Drifters" and the "Dupree's" ! When in what we refer to as the "chorus" seats you are almost on stage and... More

Enjoyed 3 great performances here, namely, Chubby Checker, the Drifters, and the Duprees. Comfortable seats. We sat in the loge section, a reasonable distance from the stage. Prices were very reasonable.

I find it incredible that this venue exists in Nashville. It is an outstanding place to hear any concert, but there is a BUT. The acoustics are so perfect that when artists that are not used to playing in such a hall attempt to play with the same equipment that they use in a warehouse or other venue, the sound... More

We have been members since the new hall, we look forward to every concert! We also look forward prior to each concert for "conversations." A time to learn the who, what, why, and how about each piece. HIGHLY recommend a concert or a season of concerts.

The theater is very impressive as your approach as well as inside - nicely decorated. It was smaller seating than I anticipated. We had seats in the upper balcony on the sides. Each area was small in the number of guests which lends itself to an intimacy. Seats were individual wooden chairs with seat padding and wooden arms. Initially the... More
