AXS.com | By Linda Brewer – Can you believe that we are almost at summer solstice, when the heat becomes sweltering, the humidity a wool blanket enveloping our already over-heated bodies, mosquitos thriving on our blood and the lakes full of swimmers, boaters and jet skiers? It’s true, Nashville has hot summers, but along with that heat comes some hot entertainment in the form of free community concerts by the Nashville Symphony, food and music festivals and of course, the big Fourth of July celebrations around town. In fact, the whole week leading up to the 4th is usually full of summer cookouts, family pool parties and summer sports. If you don’t have a party planned for your own backyard, you might make your way to Schermerhorn Symphony Center for a Texas-style Courtyard Cookout and some Texas Tenors music.
As always, Nashville Symphony leads the way to diversity in the entertainment offered in the city that was once only known for country music, this time with The Texas Tenors. In this case, you will find a mixed bag of genres within the one concert, as the Nashville Symphony and Texas Tenors join together to bring the audience classical, standards and country hits.
The Texas Tenors have performed all over the world, to the tune of 800+ shows since their stint on the reality entertainment contest series America’s Got Talent, a huge NBC hit show.
Before you hit the Laura Turner Hall at the Symphony Center for some Texan style music, make sure to head out to the Schermerhorn Garden Courtyard for a big Texas BBQ dinner, provided by Bacon & Caviar. The big BBQ supper will include summery drinks, adult beverages and otherwise, as well as live music by Misha Robledo & Brother Slade.
Here’s the good part; with our secret code, BBQ, AXSNashville readers will be able to purchase a ticket to see the Texas Tenors and Nashville Symphony plus a prepaid Bacon & Caviar BBQ dinner voucher. Seriously, where else can you get a concert and a dinner for $35? Of course, the alcoholic beverages are sold separately. Call the box office at 615.687.6400 and with the mention of BBQ, get the above special or visit the Nashville Symphony Website and enter the BBQ code.
P.S. If it rains, the dinner will be held in the West Lobby.
Great News! The best part of all is; if you are active or retired military personnel, simply show your ID in person at the box office to receive a 20% discount off the concert.
