Living in Music City means there is never a shortage of live music out there for your listening pleasure, and the warm summer weather makes it the perfect time to get out and enjoy! Of course, the added bonus of various free options is music to our ears. Here are some of the fun and free music opportunities available to you this summer.
Nashville Symphony Community Concerts
Every summer, the Nashville Symphony likes to kick-off the season with a series of free community concerts. These free concerts take place at various parks around town, and are a great way to relax, enjoy a picnic dinner with friends and family, and take in the sounds of the symphony. These concerts run throughout the month of June, so make sure to find a time and place that work for you to go check it out!
