Symphony’s popularity about to see a spike?

According to a poll on the Nashville Business Journal web site, Nashvillians may be far more likely to attend symphony performances now that the performance hall is built and open. Or at least, readers of the Journal are. But I think it probably applies across most of the rest of Nashville’s population. I know going to the symphony had never even crossed my mind before in the three and a half years Karsten and I have been living in Nashville.

What about you? Are you more likely to go? Have you been to see the symphony in the past? Where did they play, anyway?

    Definitely — hell, it’s hard to find an excuse when it’s right across the street.

    Although, I could say that about the Preds, too, and it’s been 3 years since I’ve been to a game. Ah, laziness.

    thats like asking people “do you plan on voting?” — everyone says yes because its the easy/socially acceptable/sophisticated thing to do. will they actually get out there and do it? probably not.

    all of this comes from nashvillians have an inferiority complex about being from nashville. for instance, i don’t know how many friends I have that glamorize NYC and just love going to see “a show” — when they actually hate it. but they pretend its much cooler than it is just because thats what cool people do, right?

    and the symphony is no different. give it a year, nobody will care. its somewhat reflected in the NYT review of the schermerhorn. he criticized it for being an unoriginal rip of other halls. and thats exactly it, nashville was just trying to play catch up and be something it really isn’t – so we come off as just trying too hard.

    damn you sarah jessica parker.

    I thought it might be cool. I saw the symph play at BU once. They did Lord of the Ring songs.
