Nashville Symphony Amy Grant
The Nashville Symphony Amy Grant concert features a symphony orchestra that was founded in 1946 and which calls the Shermerhorn Symphony Center. Its principal conductor is Giancarlo Guerrero and it plays nearly one hundred and forty concerts each year, often to sold out audiences. The orchestra saw its beginning in an earlier group of musicians founded in 1920 an ensemble and elected George Pullen Jackson, a Vanderbilt University professor and music critic for the Nashville Banner, as its first president. The orchestra, however, like other organizations of the time suffered from The Depression. However, in 1945, war veteran Walter Sharp campaigned for a new orchestra and thus was the Nashville Symphony founded.
The first music director of this new orchestra was William Strickland, a conductor from New York City. Its first concert was at the War Memorial Auditorium in Nashville, with William Strickland leadint the orchestra for the next five seasons, settings standards that all conductors since then have sustained. He was followed by Guy Taylor, who was the conductor from 1951 until 1959, followed by Willis Page until 1967, Thor Johnson until 1975 and then Michael Charry until 1982. During Michael Charry’s reign, the symphony moved from the War Memorial Auditorium to the Tennessee Performing Arts Center’s Jackson Hall.
In 1983, Kenneth Schermerhorn became the new principal conductor and music director of this symphony, which is set to perform at the Nashville Symphony Amy Grant concert. It was during his reign that the orchestra saw many magnificent changes, increasing its popularity through recordings, tours and TV broadcasts, with performances at places such as Carnegie Hall. In 2006, Kenneth Schermerhorn passed away, followed by Leonard Slatkin appointed the artistic advisor of the orchestra until 2009. In 2006, the orchestra founded the Schermerhorn Symphony Center, which is home to the Laura Turner Concert Hall. The first concert at the new center featured a Triple Concert world premiere with Edgar Meyer, Zakir Hussain and Bela Fleck.
