Schermerhorn Symphony Center

Nashville, One Year Later

One year ago this weekend, Nashville was hit with a devastating flood. The Schermerhorn Symphony Center, the Nashville Symphony's home, took on 24 feet of murky river water. The hall was closed for 8 months, undergoing $42 million in repairs. On this first anniversary of the floods, we'll revisit a special concert in honor of the re-opening of the Schermerhorn last January. Plus, music in honor of Britain's royal wedding today.
