Nashville Symphony Essentials

The Nashville Symphony has been an essential American institution since its foundation in 1946, and Giancarlo Guerrero, conductor since 2009, has continued to make it a destination for American composers. Those have included such adventurous and influential contemporary auteurs as Michael Daugherty (Tales of Hemingway), Terry Riley (The Palmian Chord Ryddle), and Jennifer Higdon (All Things Majestic). For a glimpse into Nashville's musical ethos, look no further than their languid, sympathetic readings of Morton Gould (Jekyll and Hyde Variations) and their jazzy, lighthearted Leonard Bernstein (Fancy Free).
