I brought a group of 12 high schoolers here for a world premiere concert, and we were not disappointed! Even though we were in the highest balcony, it didn't feel like there was a bad seat in the house. We were also lucky enough to arrange a tour the next day, and our docent, Keith, was incredibly knowledgeable about the... More

Love the Schermerhorn...I've had the pleasure to be backstage at the New York Metropolitan Opera, and many theaters...including backstage, onstage and in the audience at the Schermerhorn. There are no bad seats. The sound and comfort are wonderful from everywhere, and as a performer, (just in the chorus, not a 'star' by any means), each person is treated as a... More

We went to hear the Irish Tenors Christmas concert. We ate in the little sandwich shop and enjoyed the beautiful music. This is a beautiful place, and our upstairs seats were very good. We were able to park at the LP field and take a shuttle. We had a very nice evening.

This symphony hall is beautiful. The sounds made here by the symphony and other musical groups are memorable. The candelabras in the hall look like clusters of pearls. I love to visit this symphony center

Love the Schermerhorn. It is a beautiful venue and not a bad seat in the place. Great variety of concerts besides the incredible Nashville Symphony including a jazz series which was awesome. Last year I also saw America's Got Talent, Gordon Lightfoot and Hugh Laurie there. All were incredible.

We went on Saturday evening and the show went for about 2 hours with an intermission. The musical skill of the symphony we found dazzling to the ear and as non musicians intriguing to watch. The venue is extremely nice. All the proctors were helpful and polite. We found parking across the street (last space in the garage we think)... More

The inside is as beautiful as the outside, the sound is fantastic and the seating is great. You can dine inside and enjoy the center while eating. This is just a wonderful place Nashville has built.

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful concert in a beautiful setting. This was our first concert in this venue and we will be back. Everything was lovely, the staff very helpful, and the seats and company was great.

The building only houses one of the greatest symphonies, but the people that see to the programs take it to a greater level. If you are planning a trip to Music City try to come during a concert. You will not be disappointed!
