Nashville may earn a firm reputation as the country music capital but you can hear a diverse range of genres in Music City. Live jazz, rock and R &B are performed throughout Nashville but if you want to hear classical, there’s no better place than Schermerhorn Symphony Center where the Nashville Symphony performs along with a host of other ensembles.
An evening at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center provides beautiful surroundings, food and music. Filled with artwork, crystal chandeliers and even a public garden with a colonnade, the center is filled with classical elegance. Before concerts, the fine dining restaurant Arpeggio located in the East Lobby, serves up a luxurious four course buffet with an eclectic range of dishes including quail breast, pesto seared halibut and grilled vegetable stuffed ravioli. The center hosts a range of symphony concerts, including shows with Nashville Symphony Chorus and the symphony backing nationally acclaimed vocalists. March performances feature a mix of classical, jazz and world music including jazz singer Cassandra Wilson, The Cleveland Orchestra, Spanish Harlem Orchestra and Lyle Lovett & John Hiatt. Concerts start at 7 or 8 PM and tickets are reserved in advance.
