Music City USA indeed. This performance called me to heartstring attention by the tympani and another lulled a delicate cello ballet - they strung me along.🙌🤘👏 Nashville Symphony Hall is a must-visit.

I've been a season ticket holder from the very first year and this is by far the most beautiful and acoustic hall I've ever encountered. Yo Yo Ma is my favorite so far and we sat behind him in the choral section. What a gift! He was also kind enough to play an encore and my friend cried her eyes... More

Thank you for your kind and enthusiastic review of Schermerhorn Symphony Center. Tickets for many concerts do start at $25, fees included, and we encourage people to attend concerts dressed how they feel most comfortable. As our Maestro Giancarlo Guerrero says: All you need is a pair of ears to enjoy classical music. There are a number of parking options... More

No matter how many times you listen a recording of your favorite piece, there's nothing like LIVE MUSIC. From the outside courtyard, passing the main lobby and heading to the concert hall, it's already an experience never to forget! You will be surprised of the variety of ages you'll see inside. What can be consider "old music" becomes ALIVE, new... More

This latest trip was my third experience in the Schermerhorn! I absolutely love being in the audience there! It is a beautiful building, inside and out. It is worth seeing even without attending an event , however experiencing the Schermerhorn is the best! Whether attending symphony or other concert this is an excellent and beautiful venue!

This was my first time for a concert here but won't be the last!! The whole atmosphere was awesome. The hall is beautiful. We were in the back on the floor and I was afraid we wouldn't be able to see well but it was fine. The real star of the show was the acoustics! Amazing! The whole production was... More

Came for the first time to see the wonderful Peter Cetera, the Voice of Chicago, with the Nashville Symphony Orchestra for 3 shows. Amazing venue, fantastic sound. Everything is top notch. Ladies room was large so there was no waiting. That is always a plus!! There is a small bar if you would like a drink and opposite the bar... More

Setting was very beautiful in the Schermerhorn Symphony Center, and at the age of 91 Hal Holbrook did a good job preforming Mark Twain, but it was very hard to hear him for most of his performance. Have been to other concerts at the Symphony Center and they have all been wonderful.

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
