Nashville Symphony Presents Free “Thank You” Concert Tonight

With Schermerhorn Symphony Center damaged by the extensive downtown flooding, the Nashville Symphony has moved swiftly to find alternative venues for multiple May concerts. The first of these is tonight’s (5/7) free outdoor public concert in front of the Metro Courthouse, One Public Square. 

The Symphony is calling the free show a “thank-you” to the city of Nashville for helping friends, neighbors and fellow citizens through the unprecedented events of the last few days.

Maestro Giancarlo Guerrero and Resident Conductor Albert-George Schram will lead a program of symphonic favorites, and ‘80s hitmaker Christopher Cross (who is waiving his fee for the show) will join the orchestra to perform a selection of his hits. Attendees are encouraged to bring chairs or blankets, and come out to enjoy an evening of music with the Nashville Symphony.

Thanks to the generosity of the Nashville Downtown Partnership and Metro Nashville Government, the Symphony will also be offering free parking for this event at the Metro Courthouse/Public Square Garage. Located directly under the Public Square, these parking spaces will be available on a first come, first served basis from 6:00-11:00 PM.
