What a great event this was! We don't attend the symphony regularly, but this particular performance piqued our interest so we went. It was such a delight to watch the movie while listening to the beautiful score being performed live. We had box seats so we were in close proximity to the pit and were so drawn to the musicians...

I traveled here in December and January to see Home Alone and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Absolutely wonderful performances!! The building itself is beautiful and clean and the seats are comfortable. I'd highly recommend the movie performances, for all ages.

Enjoyed a wonderful experience with the Nashville Symphony playing the soundtrack of Harry Potter the first movie. Only suggestion is to provide more servers when you have a full house during intermissions.

We attended a Christmas concert featuring Wynton Marsalis and jazz band. The show was great and the seats very comfortable. We were in the upper level balcony and although far away from the stage we could still see and hear everything on the stage. The only drawback is the parking. I paid $26 to park in a lot across from... More

The Schermerhorn is located in the perfect spot in downtown Nashville. A wonderful facility that offers a plethora of entertainment. An easy walk to many restaurants, hotels and bustling Broadway. The decor inside is classic/beautiful and the seats/views are fabulous. The staff is always very kind and attentive.

Great Christmas Concert with Wynton at a concert hall that is state of the art and one of the best places to watch and listen to music, musician's and jazz vocalist. This in my personal view on par with the Lincoln Center in NYC.

We went on a Saturday evening to see the Nashville Symphony Christmas Pops, which coming from Boston is a must do event and sells out very quickly. I planned this two weeks in advance and was amazed how beautiful the center is and how well maintained, clean and organized it was. We sat in the seats behind the orchestra, the... More

We attended the Dave Barnes concert which was good music accompanied by entertaining conversation. The Schermerhorn does not disappoint. We were in the highest balcony so we were quite a distance from the stage. While we had good sight lines, the distance to the stage made smaller gestures difficult to see. The sound, however, was fantastic, and, of course, the... More
