Vanderbilt Family Night with the Nashville Symphony

The annual symphony concert on the lawn for Vanderbilt employees and their families moves to Centennial Park this year in a cooperative effort with the Nashville Symphony. This concert is the first of many that the Symphony performs during June as part of its free Community Concerts series and Vanderbilt is proud to co-sponsor the June 4 performance. The Orchestra will perform a rousing repertoire of music from Tchaikovsky to Cole Porter at the Centennial Park band shell starting at 7:30 p.m. Bring your dinner basket, blanket or lawn chair and eat under the stars while being immersed in music. The concert is free and open to all Vanderbilt employees and their families as part of our Employee Celebration activities.
