The Schermerhorn Symphony Center is a concert hall in downtown Nashville, Tennessee. The center formally opened on September 9, 2006, and it is a prominent example of 21st century New Classical architecture.
The center is named in honor of Kenneth Schermerhorn, who was the music director and conductor of the Nashville Symphony from 1983 until his death in 2005; the center was named before maestro Schermerhorn's death.
Through the use of motorize wagons, the concert hall can be converted into a 5,700-square-foot (530 m2) ballroom in approximately two hours. The Laura Turner Concert Hall is insulated from exterior noise by an acoustical isolation joint, a 2-inch gap of air that encircles the hall and prevents transmission of sound waves in or out.
Schermerhorn Symphony Center also houses the Mike Curb Family Music Education Hall, a 2,438-square-foot (226.5 m2) space that hosts smaller performances.
