“Night out with mother”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

I carried my mother here to see Mama Mia for her birthday. My mother is in a wheelchair. I called ahead and they were able to get her into a special seat asked that I call when I got there. They met me on the corner and carried mama in while I parked the car. They knew it was her birthday and treated her like a queen that night.

“Best Symphonic Venue in the US”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

This ranks as, most likely, the best symphonic venue in the country. The acoustics are perfect from all angles and in any seat, even on the back row of the lower section. Solo instruments can be heard as if the musician is sitting 15 feet in front of you. The building itself is the classiest building in Nashville.

“Whoopi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Frist time to see her live and the show was very good. What I liked best was after the show was over she took questions from us for about 15 minutes or more.

“Beautiful venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

I've seen several shows here and have enjoyed every one. The only time the sound wasn't superb was when the movie Casablanca was showing and the symphony was playing the music at the same time - it was hard to hear any of the words, however the music sounded wonderful. Every concert I've been to has sounded beautiful and I look forward to visiting again.
