Pick Your Encore

Each summer, as part of its mission to bring music to everyone in Middle Tennessee, the Nashville Symphony is proud to present its free Community Concert series.

Before we announce this year's concerts, the Nashville Symphony wants YOU to be involved in choosing the encore piece to close out each Community Concert. Each week, we'll present a different match-up of works for you to vote on until you have selected a winner.

Not familiar with one of the works? Just click the link below each banner to hear a sample. Be sure to vote for your favorite piece and come back each week for the next match-up! One vote per person per day.
