Treat yourself to a night at the Schermerhorn! No matter who you go to see perform, you will enjoy the performance from any seat in the house. Valet park in from for 20 (well worth it) and walk up the grand staircase to the entrance. Enjoy a glass of wine before the show and explore the building. Walk up the... More

After surviving the big flood and the challenging debt restructuring, the Symphony Center keeps standing as one of the (unfortunately not that well known) pillars of the Nashville music scene. From the Grammy winning Nashville Symphony Orchestra, performing crowd pleasers and contemporary pieces, to well presented Rock, Jazz and other music shows, there is never a wasted night at the...

Good place for attending to a performance. Good lights, acoustic seemed nice also. Lots of seats on the sides, at a higher level, brings one to the feeling he's leaning over the performer's shoulder.

A lot of folks in the deep south can't imagine themselves at a Symphony Hall - even with it's weird name the Schermerhorn is different. The packages - the stars - great value and great music. There's something for everyone!

The Schermerhorn Symphony Center is one of my favorite places in Nashville to visit. The music is so beautiful, that it just flows throughout the auditorium. Christmas specials are my favorites.

When you first walk into the Schermerhorn you will be taken back at the architecture. It is like walking back in time but it is not old. So beautiful! It is a most intimate venue. So the feeling is like you are at a private convert. I have been there many times. Each time sitting in the floor section from... More

Schermerhorn has excellent sound for the Nashville Symphony, which is a great symphony for a medium-size city. Schermerhorn is a beautiful building, well maintained with comfortable seating. A coffee-shop type restaurant and two full-service bars are available. Great acoustics!

It is a beautiful place to come and enjoy an evening of culture. We enjoyed watching the Phantom of the Opera while the organist played.
