Great way to find your way round York
Never knew about the York cat statues before. Great way to learn about it’s history and a great way to find your way around York.

Some of the statues can be hard to spot but they are definitely there.

A lovely place very old looking inside and posh. A little confusing to find my seats some staff not to certain as to where we should go, comfortable seats and a good view. Drinks were quite reasonable prices $3 for a coke and sprite.

Great show, would have preferred just hearing the sumphony
The building is remarkably beautiful. Valet parking. The movie plays with subtitles and every sound in the movie is made by the symphony. It gets a bit boring for what it costs but it’s nice to experience.

Excellent venue for concert!
Dec 2019
Attended the SING! An Irish Christmas earlier this week with the Getty's. The venue was just beautiful and easy to get to. We chose to stay in a downtown hotel to alleviate any stress in parking and leaving after the event. The staff was attentive and helpful, very friendly. The venue itself provided the best backdrop for the Getty's concert. It was truly a wonderful experience in a beautiful building.

We saw Michael W Smith with the Nashville Symphony and Marc Martel. The symphony was exquisite, Marc has an amazing voice and Michael was outstanding as always.

Feels like 'Old Money'
Nov 2019
Went to see a Don Williams tribute with him on screen singing and the Orchestra in support. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

This is a grand building with plenty of space and a genteel feeling supported by lovely staff who were happy to chat and ensure that you made the most of your visit. Clearly well supported by the 'well to do' of the region we saw a large plaque thanking individuals who had donated $1m or more. I think some were in the audience as you got the feeling there was a mix of Don Williams fans and those present to support the Symphony. I may be wrong. We booked on-line from the UK before our trip and found the process of choosing seats a little tricky but in the event our seats on a balcony at the rear of the very large room were good value. So glad we found this event.

Choral Symphony was wonderful
Nov 2019
As a musician, I check the schedule for the Nashville Symphony for the days I would be in the city. Turned out the concerts for those days were CHORAL in nature....and I am a singer. I was very excited about the possibility of attending, but my companion not so much.

After we got there and I had booked a Sunday brunch at BB King's restaurant to hear some live blues, my companion decided he would try to the symphony. Having never attended one, I had to explain a couple of things to him, but we were seating almost center of the lower balcony, perfect to hear the choir, which was straight in front of us!

I was impressed that the chorus did not stand in sections for the first piece on the program, Serenade to Music, set to words by Shakespeare. The choir stood in random order, i.e., soprano next to a bass and tenor next to an alto, not the most usual with all the sopranos together, altos together, etc. This standing arrangement made for a wonderful blend in the chorus that not only made for stand out choral sound, but truly made the chorus another texture added to the orchestra. Most enjoyable!

The second piece was an organ concerto. The soloist was excellent and the orchestra performed superbly!

After intermission the chorus returned, this time in the standard SATB arrangement, to sing, along with STB soloists, to performance Rachmaninoff's "The Bells," an extended setting of poetry by Edgar Allen Poe. The words for both this piece and the earlier "Serenade" were projected on a screen above the chorus. Although both were sung in English, I think this probably made both pieces more enjoyable.

My companion learned a lot about the orchestra, about choruses and about classical music during this concert and I know he ended up enjoying it as much as I did!

Don Williams Tribute
Oct 2019
I have been wanting to see a show in Symphony center , and Here comes the Tribute to Don Williams , No matter what your Favorite style of Music is , Don Williams had that style and Voice that would be pleasing to hear and the songs some how or some way you would had felt a connection in your life to the songs by either you or someone you knew . The Hall was perfect Not only Don Band but the Nashville Symphony played along with this Bigger then Life Screen that had Don doing all of his songs .
and some How some way they made it all work .
It was a Celebration of Don and what a Roller coaster ride it must had to been for his family and band and manager to put this Amazing Show on , Celebration with Emotion at times as you watch the band as they play and have that chance to look at the screen of Don
The Nashville Symphony and it Director was amazing , Thank you to all

Perfection
Oct 2019 • Couples
First visit here but hopefully not the last. Went to see a favorite artist who was performing with the Nashville Symphony. The venue is not huge and the sound is wonderful. I don’t know how many people it hold but it was full and never felt crowded. They have bars in many places and the prices are comparable to other live music venues.
Beautiful evening at a beautiful venue.
