Downtown Nashvegas

As you know, music is a big part of life in Nashville. However, it isn't all about country music! Nashville is proud to have it's very own Symphony. The building is named in honor of the late Maestro Kenneth Schermerhorn, who led the GRAMMY Award-winning Nashville Symphony for 22 years, Schermerhorn Symphony Center is home of the Nashville Symphony. Located in downtown Nashville's SoBro (South of Broadway) neighborhood, across from the Country Music Hal of Fame and Museum, the building hosts a wide range of musical events, including classical, pops, jazz, and world music. The building is designed to resembled the great music halls of Europe. 

Speaking of the Hall of Fame, here she is! To the left is a nod to an old radio tower, the windows resemble piano keys and the shape looks like Elvis's Cadillac. From an airplane, the building is in the shape of a bass clef. Inside, you can see Dolly Parton's wigs, Taylor Swift's microphone and many other pieces of music history.

Speaking of shapes and symbolism, this is the most iconic building in Nashville's skyline, the AT&T building. But if you come to Nashville, you know it as the Batman Building. We hope you can see it in person very soon!
