Unbelievable. Had no idea Nashville had such an incredible space, and such an accomplished symphony. We saw Ben Folds here and the symphony was just outstanding. Especially the blonde viola player in the front row, but I digress... They have a very eclectic set of programs this year, from Yes to Chick Corea to Mozart and Beethoven. The acoustics are... More

This is a beautiful venue to see musical performances. There's not a bad seat in the house and the acoustics are amazing. You are up close and personal with the performers and the experience is so nice. Triple Forks Hunting

We had the pleasure of seeing Culture Club at the Schermerhorn. Wow, what an outstanding theater. There is not a bad seat in the house. Boy George remarked at the seats behind the stage, unique. We would not hesitate to come back again!

Beautiful venue, excellent acoustics. No need to buy expensive tickets, no bad seats. Plenty of parking and restaurants close by. Employees on every hand ready to answer questions, provide directions. All guests treated with the utmost respect. Elevator operated by employee, no chance to get lost. Grammy award winning orchestra. No hoity-toity atmosphere here. Parking from $2 -$15.

We attended a concert with the Nashville Symphony and LeAnn Rimes. The symphony is excellent . . very accomplished. And LeAnn sounded great on their superior sound system. The concert hall is beautiful to the eye. We recommend seating in the Founders Circle or side boxes.

We saw Seth McFarlane at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center. This place is beautiful and the seats were extremely comfortable. His voice is amazing and the orchestra was wonderful - would definitely go again.

The Schermerhorn Symphony Center is the perfect size for a musical venue. We had nearly front-and-center seats and the acoustics were wonderful. There are plenty of gathering spaces outside to meet up with friends for a drink and snack before or after the show.

The Schermerhorn is a beautiful older facility that thankfully is still aroundand being used. The night we were there, there was main floor seating, and on the elevated sides was box seating. The seats were comfortable and the sound was good. The staff they had working there were very nice and knowledgable. They also have a bar set up for... More

I can't say enough about how much I love this place. The venue is amazing, the staff is stupendous. The care with which they approach their "guests" (aka customers) is evident, top to bottom. It's not a stuffy gathering of the well-heeled and rusty-jointed as I once believed. Go, be respectful to be quiet during the performances, and you'll have... More
