    So proud of my hometown!

    While I was posting my daily defense of classical music, I decided to post a few pics of Schermerhorn Hall in Nashville, TN. I am so excited that they got the funding and built this thing... especially now that Nashville is truly becoming "Music City" and not just "Country Music City". Nashville has Leonard Slatkin filling in after the untimely death of their champion who the hall is named after. You all have to see these pictures. If you click the images on the page it opens full rez shots. You have to see how amazing it is! I can't wait to go to a concert there. The place is so sound proof a 727 can fly right over it and it won't be heard.

    That's a pretty fancy place for pickers and grinners.

    I'm kidding...I'm kidding. It's a beautiful place and must have cost a bazillion dollars. It's something of which Nashville and the state of Tennessee can be proud.

    Actually them pickers and grinners sneak in there every once in a while!

    I am dying to see a concert in there. I just need to find a free moment in life.

    Jess--What a fantastic looking facility! And I had fun using the animated seating chart--Everyone has to take a look at that, zooming around to show you what your view of the stage will be depending on where you sit.

    Thanks for this--Inspiring!

    It opened in September. I have already spotted 2 or 3 concerts I want to attend. In May they are doing Bartok's Concerto for Orchestra, Respighi's Pines of Rome, and all sorts of other stuff. I have never seen a program with so much 20th century and up stuff. I am very stoked.

    Would you like to hear a piece written to inaugurate the new concert hall? Check out the world premiere of Bela Fleck (banjo), Zakir Hussain (tabla), and Edgar Meyer (bass) with the Nashville Symphony Orchestra and conductor Leonard Slatkin playing the final movement from a Concerto written by Bela Fleck, Zakir Hussain and Edgar Meyer.

    The piece has not yet been released on CD, but is available this week here:
    http://performancetoday.publicradio....y=26&year=2007

    Listen to it during the the first hour of the show.

    That particular piece starts around 47:00, but the whole show is excellent.

    Enojy!

    Thanks for the link--definitely worth the listen. I particularly enjoyed Bela Fleck's rendition of "Doctor Gradus ad Parnassum". Its at the beginning of the show. Pretty cool.
    Nashville's a great town. Definitely a world music center.
