Opening Week at the Schermerhorn

Beautiful. Simply beautiful.

I happened to be downtown today to see workers scurrying about to place the final touches on downtown Nashville's magnificent, $123.5 million Schermerhorn Symphony Center.

Schermerhorn Symphony Center, the new home of the Nashville Symphony and a centerpiece of Nashville's downtown revitalization, will open to the public on September 9, 2006. The Symphony will mark the unveiling of its new home with celebratory concerts and events that reflect the expanded scope of programming made possible by the new Symphony Center.

Here's a view I took last year from the Bell South Tower on a very rainy and dreary day. But the sun is out and today Nashville takes a giant leap in advancing the arts with not only the new Schermerhorn Symphony Center, but with the Country Music Hall of Fame, Gaylord Entertainment Center, the Frist Museum and other music and dining venues nearby, going downtown will be fun. Bravo!
