With a lot of Nashvillians, there’s still a bit of a disconnect, where the Nashville Symphony is seen as something geared only toward folks who were reared on classical music and in country clubs.

The truth, though: Our Grammy-winning Symphony — and the architectural marvel that they call home, the Schermerhorn Symphony Center — intends to welcome all Nashvillians, from people who love Chopin to people who love Kenny Chesney, from high-rollers to neighbors who keep tighter entertainment budgets.

Probably the most comprehensive example of the Symphony’s attempt to reach across the city: the annual Free Day of Music, coming up in 2018 on Saturday, Oct. 27.

Four stages of free music

Running all day at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., this year’s Free Day of Music will be set up with four stages, hosting performances of everything from rock and pop to jazz and classical.

A few of the acts set to perform: local classical ensemble Chatterbird, local vocal ensemble Nashville in Harmony, and, kicking off the day, a concert from the Symphony. All told, there’ll be 25 performers doing what they do, morning to evening.

Given the time of year, the event’s also adding in plenty of Halloween flair, including Halloween/Day of the Dead-themed face-painting and costume contests and a story corner (with spooky tales being told, wrangled by East Nashville’s The Bookshop).

Extra fun for young Nashvillians: the Instrument Petting Zoo will be available in the early afternoon, too, offering an opportunity to play with an array of different instruments.

Add in food trucks, a photo booth, and craft beer-focused beer garden, and it’s a pretty fantastic return for a ticket price of zero.
