Schermerhorn Symphony Hall

Within a few months of its creation as a new firm, Akustiks was selected in a national competition among acousticians to design the architectural acoustics for a new concert hall for the City of Nashville. Its completion, and its subsequent critical and popular success, has been a major benchmark in the growth and development of one of the Southeast’s premier ensembles. Located in downtown Nashville, the 1,900-seat, $124 million “neo-classically inspired” building is next to the Country Music Hall of Fame. The hall opened to critical acclaim in September 2006.
