The Schermerhorn Symphony Center opened in September 2006 as the first permanent home for the Nashville Symphony. The hall, which was named after the late Maestro Kenneth Schermerhorn, is used for symphony performances as well as a variety of other concert events throughout the year. The hall includes a variety of innovative designs which add to the ambiance of the symphony. Specially designed windows provide natural interior light, and movable banners and panels provide the ideal acoustics for a variety of musical genres. The convertible seating system can transform from rows of raked seating perfect for performances to a level, hardwood ballroom floor for cabaret-style events and jazz concerts. The beautiful symphony center is a wonderful addition to music city.
