A lovely venue for a night out. Enjoyed the evening and the music. Nice to have a Symphony in this city.

I was surprised to walk into this old wold architecture, with sculptures and water fountains, pedestrian plaza and an open courtyard. Beautiful Building. I was such a nice sunny spring morning, that I finished my coffee in the courtyard and enjoyed a peaceful weekend morning.

My daughter and I ventured to Nashville for a mini vacation. Since my daughter is a french horn player, we naturally wanted to visit the symphony. They were playing Mahler's Ninth. The venue was amazingly beautiful. But that wasn't even a testament to the symphony....More

So glad to see they are using this beautiful symphony hall for different types of concerts. There are no bad seats and just being there makes you feel such appreciation for such a magnificent structure.

This was our first time attending the symphony. My teenage daughter and I were very impressed with our seats, especially since we had purchased our tickets just 3 hours prior. I would try to get the private box seats next time. I'd definitively return.

I never sat in those seats, but since the acoustics in the other areas is impeccable, I would bet it is great there, too. It would be almost like the sound sitting in the orchestra playing and you get to see every move of... More

Looking for suggestions, ideas on clothing options appropriate for the symphony. Taking into consideration the season and style of music to be performed. Going to see the music of Prince, starring Marshall Charloff. It is scheduled for November 8th. This will be my first time to attending a symphony hall and I want to make sure that I'm not under dressed. The only dress I own is a black knee length. I've worn it once. To my husband's funeral. Don't think I will ever wear it again. So, I'm thinking about skinny jeans or maybe palazzo pants. I love beautiful clothes but, rarely buy them because I spend most of the time in work clothes. The tickets are a special treat to myself and who knows how long it will be before I do something like this again. If anyone has any suggestions please help this old lady out!
