I’m happy to report that I’m right in the middle of one of the happiest places in the American classical music scene right now: Nashville, TN. I’m here to cover the opening of what I don’t doubt is one of the most significant events in this business over the past decade: the opening of the $120 million Schermerhorn Symphony Center. After my first day on-site all I have to say so far is wow…
Starting next week I’ll begin an in-depth series of articles that will show you everything you wanted to know about Nashville’s new hall, much of which you won’t find anywhere else. You’re going to get to see all of the stuff you really want to know about and more, but while I’m busy gathering up pictures and conducting interviews over the next few days, I’m going to leave you with a few appetizers of things to come (including – but not limited to – cowboy boots, a bronze bust, and a new violin).

Yes, but did you hear any bluegrass?
Surely you didn’t just go to the wonderful new Symphony Centre?
