A Night at the Cotton Club
Channeling the energy of legendary juke joint the Cotton Club, the Nashville Symphony transforms the theater into a smoky, hopping barroom with tunes from some of the most celebrated names in jazz. The program was arranged by conductor Jeff Tyzik, and showcases everything from the call and response hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi-ing of Cab Calloway’s “Minnie the Moocher” to Duke Ellington’s thoughtful yet carefree “It Don’t Mean a Thing If It Ain’t Got That Swing.” The Symphony’s roster of ace musicians reinterpret these compositions with playfulness, including Byron Stripling, who the LA Times has called a “towering and powerful trumpet player.” Chanteuse Carmen Bradford also joins the NSO for their jaunt through the past, showing off the pipes that earned her a starring solo role in Count Basie’s band and reminding people of a time when dancing wasn’t just jumping up and down in place for four minutes.
Schermerhorn Symphony Center
Even though it opened in 2006, Schermerhorn Symphony Center looks like it's been a part of the landscape for centuries. That's because the center, which is named for Nashville Symphony's late maestro Kenneth Schermerhorn, took its design cues from famed European concert halls. Its classic appearance is enhanced by 30 soundproof windows, which allow natural sunlight or unnatural spaceship lights to stream in. A custom-built organ rings out through the hall, and a convertible seating design allows the hall to morph into a ballroom floor for cabaret shows or weddings.
