Nov. 10, 2015—In my continuous effort to explore every corner of Nashville, I attended a special Broadway-themed performance of the Nashville Symphony (featuring a real-life Disney princess!) and didn't pay a cent.
Aug. 21, 2013—As a cellist at Blair, I get geekily giddy about the Nashville Symphony’s upcoming concert season. As a poor college student, I am sorely short in trying the funds to buy tickets. A huge “however” is in order though, because the Nashville Symphony has a program called SoundCheck for classical music loving students like me and you to be able to soak in some fantastic orchestral performances and bask in all the grandeur of the Schermerhorn Hall!
Feb. 13, 2013—Many a time, I pray for inspiration. Sometimes, music majors get down in a funk about practicing, as it seems like there’s no point in sawing away at our expensive, hollowed out pieces of wood and we suffer from a dearth of motivation. But I first encountered Johannes Moser when he performed the Schumann Cello Concerto with the Berlin Philharmonic. On Youtube, that is. That three minute clip was so inspiring that I ran to the practice room and practiced for an hour and a half.
Nov. 7, 2012—So what better for Blair kids to do on their Friday night than go to the Schermerhorn Symphony Center for a delightful evening of music?

From the pianists to violists to vocalists to horn players, the Blair School of Music had invaded the Nashville Symphony. Yes, that is what we music majors do to kick off our weekends.
