Nashville Symphony String Quartet
The Nashville Symphony inspires, entertains, educates and serves through musical performance, innovation, collaboration and inclusion. Led by music director Giancarlo Guerrero, the Nashville Symphony has been an integral part of the Music City sound since 1946. In a typical year, the orchestra performs more than 150 concerts annually, with a focus on contemporary American orchestral music. Education and community engagement have been at the core of the Nashville Symphony’s mission since its founding. Each year the organization reaches tens of thousands of children and adults through an array of free and low-cost programs, including Young People’s Concerts; sectional lessons for band and orchestra students; free Community Concerts; and “Is It a Fiddle or a Violin?". In 2016, the Nashville Symphony launched Accelerando, an initiative designed to prepare young musicians from underrepresented ethnic communities for collegiate study and professional orchestra careers.
