- Gabriella Smith—Tumblebird Contrails: Only in her mid-20s, this up-and-coming Bay Area composer returns to Nashville to guide the symphony through her latest, wildly inventive piece. Throughout, her music draws upon natural phenomena, from birdsongs to the crashing of ocean waves.
- Grieg—Piano Concerto in A Minor: Pomp and bombast mark this work, which betrays the youthful angst of the composer in his 24th year. Fronting the orchestra for this piece will be Conrad Tao, a pianist hailed for his “probing intellect and open-hearted vision” by the New York Times.
- Prokofiev—Symphony No. 5 in B-flat major: The composer himself considered this symphony his magnum opus, and a testament to all human greatness. It lives up to its creator’s assessment with richly textured melodies, bone-shaking volume, and a deep sense of dignity.

About 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.
