Young People's Concerts


Each year, thousands of students attend Young People's Concerts at the Nashville Symphony. FREE for students grades K-12 and $10 for chaperones and teachers, these concerts are open to public, private, and home schools, and offer a comprehensive educational experience that enriches in-school learning. Participating teachers receive access to a downloadable curriculum that includes lesson plans, music selections, and more. The content of each concert is geared toward specific grade levels (K-2, 3-5, and 6-12), and meets both fine arts and academic Tennessee state standards. 


  • Due to high demand and attrition rates, school groups (public, private, and charter) must provide a Purchase Order Number to complete their reservation. Email  [email protected]with any questions. 
  • School groups are required to have a minimum ratio of 1 chaperone per 24 students. All adults attending must purchase their tickets through the school reservation. We cannot accept individual payments for adult tickets. 
  • Home school groups (including private co-ops and tutorials) must register as individual families only, with up to 9 students and 1 to 3 adults for a total of 10 tickets maximum. 
  • For security reasons, adult tickets will NOT be available for purchase on the morning of the concert. Ticket sales will close TWO WEEKS in advance of each concert. 
  • Title 1 schools are eligible to apply for ticket funding and bus reimbursement. Please contact [email protected] with inquiries. 


NOTE: Each individual school is responsible for ordering its own buses. Parking directions for One Symphony Place will be sent to you prior to the concert.
