U.S. Trust OnStage

  OnStage at the Schermerhorn

Classical music is fun, exciting and intellectually stimulating; pair it with a good glass of wine and great conversation and you have U.S. Trust OnStage.

U.S. Trust OnStage is designed for adult audiences to interact with Nashville Symphony musicians in a relaxed, informal setting. Hosted on weeknight evenings from 5:30-7:00 P.M., OnStage features an intimate performance, with the audience sitting right on the stage of Laura Turner Concert Hall. This FREE evening of music, wine, and good conversation is a wonderful way to get to know your Nashville Symphony musicians, meet other music lovers and explore the history and artistry behind some of the greatest pieces of music ever written.

Events take place monthly and require reservations, which can only be made online during the reservation window, two weeks before each event. Seating is limited, and reservations will be taken on a first come first served basis. If an event is full and you would like to be added to the waiting list, please contact the Education Department at 615.687.6483.
