“Best of the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2012

For those who don't know, the schmerhorn was built to be the best music venue in the world. Then the floods of 2009 came and they re-built it to be better (fixing any minor flaws). I love it! Also, the Nashville Symphony has won 6 straight Grammys for best symphony.

“Saw Branford Marsalis on Friday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2012

The venue is beautiful and the sound is great. I doubt there is a bad seat in the hall. A nice date evening.

“Schermerhorn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2012

Schermerhorn is home to the Nashville Symphony and it couldn't be more beautiful. You should definitely see a performance while in town.

“Outstanding music setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2012

We have attended the Schermerhorn several times for concerts and have been very impressed, especially by the excellent acoustics. Floor level seating when the Center is arranged with tables is sometimes a little crowded. When arranged with stadium seating, the experience is better.

Dining around the Center is limited and the restaurant Arpeggio located in the Center is a good alternative, offering an upscale buffet style dinner before concerts.
