Nashville Symphony String QuartetClassical
Members of the seven-time GRAMMY®-winning Nashville Symphony will headline a morning concert celebrating the lasting impact of music education featuring Antonín Dvorák's American String Quartet. In the inviting setting of the Franklin Theatre, student musicians from Williamson County Schools will open for these artists from our own internationally respected symphony.
Music education and community engagement have been at the heart of the Nashville Symphony’s mission since the orchestra’s beginnings. The institution now reaches more than 250,000 adults and children annually through its free education and community engagement programs. Every week during the school year, musicians and staff work directly with students across Middle Tennessee, offering concerts, classroom presentations, curriculum materials, instrument lessons and other hands-on learning opportunities. The Nashville Symphony’s Community Concerts series brings the orchestra’s music to neighborhoods across the city.
In recognition of Music in Our Schools Month, the Nashville Symphony is helping to promote the Williamson County Schools’ program “Bring Your Music to Schools,” an initiative to put instruments in the hands of Williamson County students who may otherwise not have the opportunity to play in a band or orchestra. This March, WCS will collect donations of gently used or new band and string instruments as part of the district’s effort to increase the availability of performing arts to students.
You can bring a tax-deductible instrument donation to receive two free tickets to the concert!
