Live at Eddie Arnold Ampitheater in Crockett Park...the Nashville Symphony!
Led by Music Director Giancarlo Guerrero and President and CEO Alan D. Valentine, the Nashville Symphony has established an international profile with its innovative programming and steadily expanding discography. Founded in 1946, the orchestra is today the largest performing arts nonprofit in the state of Tennessee. With 140 performances annually, the Symphony’s concert schedule encompasses a diverse mix of classical, pops, jazz and family programs, along with extensive community outreach efforts.
One of the most active recording orchestras in the country, the Nashville Symphony has released 19 recordings on Naxos, the world’s leading classical label, and will release two more recordings this year. These recordings have received a total of 14 GRAMMY® nominations and seven GRAMMY® wins, including two for Best Orchestral Performance — one awarded to Joan Tower’s Made in America and the other to Michael Daugherty’s Metropolis Symphony. Throughout its history, the Nashville Symphony has maintained a commitment to championing the music of America’s leading composers, which has earned the orchestra three ASCAP Awards for Adventurous Programming in the past three years and an invitation to perform at Carnegie Hall’s Spring For Music Festival in 2012.
