So, when planning your next trip here to Nashville, be sure to check out the event schedule on the... More

As a visitor, seeking the full Country Music experience, to Nashville in October I never for a moment imagined that I would end up attending not one but two events in this wonderful room. Just shows what can happen when you happen upon the fact that there is a free open day of music and events to be enjoyed. So... More

I can't say enough about this venue. It is absolutely a wonderful, acoustically perfect symphony hall. I saw Ben Folds with my sister and every moment was awesome. Not to mention, the venue is beautiful inside and awesome outside. Fun bonus, you might see someone famous. I know I did. :)

Very nice facilities.. sound exceptional. Would highly recommend There is parking right next to it. We paid 30.00 for 6 hours which more than covered our visit. Walking distance to all of Nashville's bar and live music. We always eat at Rock Bottoms then a trip to Savanah's Candy Kitchen for the best caramel apples around...

Yes, it has the sound quality you would expect of a world class music venue but it it is also has stunning interiors and exterior appeal. It is home to the extremely talented Nashville Symphony, which includes not only classical performances and modern and contemporary music in their repertoire. Very close to restaurants to make it a complete adventure .... More

We happened to be visiting Nashville this past Saturday, and the symphony was offering a free day of music. Someone was playing the pipe organ inside and there were two stages set up outside. The performers were awesome, and this venue is gorgeous!! The architecture is stunning and the inside is breathtaking. I would love to see more performances here!... More
