  • We went to see Jack Hannah Live, it was the first time we had been to the venue. It's a very pretty venue, and there were no bad seats as far as we could tell. I would definitely see more shows here!
  • "Schermerhorn", music to my ears. It's become a tradition to get movie night tickets every winter holiday season. This year: Home Alone 12/12. If you're a tourist visiting, definitely get yourself a seat before leaving the Music City. Such a beautiful and memorable venue!
  • We love the movie nights! Hearing the symphony play your favorite songs from Disney Movies, Indiana Jones, Star Wars, Harry Potter, and more simply magical. Plus movie nights are perfectly kid friendly!
  • Extremely nice place. I chaperoned for my son's band class, which this is the very first symphony for me. The kids really enjoyed it too.
  • Omg I'm always pleased when I visit this place. Everyone was so helpful and polite. When we needed directions to any area we were shown and treated with the best of service. Gr8 concert, great seat, and VIP service on parking. Have tickets for Oct for another visit. My number one place for any concert. Great hospitality on every angle.
