A widely popular fundraiser blending the experience of a live orchestra performance and a cocktail competition, Spirits of Summer is a curated concert event pairing musical works with creatively crafted cocktails designed by notable Nashville mixologists. Following the theme “Symphony Royale,” VIP guests kick off the evening in a High Rollers Lounge complete with gaming tables, open bar, passed hors d’oeuvres, and champagne. In the main event, Principal Pops Conductor Enrico Lopez-Yañez leads four musical selections while each mixologist presents how the piece inspired their cocktail. The audience will experience a journey of all the senses, enjoying signature cocktails paired with the music while comparing tasting notes with friends and enjoying delicious bites between each “round.” At the end of the night, the audience votes for their favorite music and cocktail pairing, with the winning mixologist taking home the Symphony’s Spirits of Summer award and a Nashville Symphony prize package. After the concert, the audience is invited to mix and mingle with Nashville Symphony musicians and the mixologists.

Spirits of Summer is presented annually by Crescendo Club, the Nashville Symphony’s young professional organization. Proceeds to benefit the Nashville Symphony, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to inspire and engage a diverse and growing community with extraordinary live orchestral music experiences.
