A lucky group of 50 of Yelp Nashville's Elite were treated to an evening filled with stellar sips and sounds with the Nashville Symphony at Cosmo & The Cosmos.
The opening night of Holst's 'The Planets' at the gorgeous Schermerhorn Symphony Center left many in awe as renowned conductor Giancarlo Guerrero led the orchestra that included dramatic pops of percussion and a unexpected addition of the Nashville Symphony Women's Chorus throughout the concert inspired by Greek mythology and astrology.
Elites gathered in the very private, opulent and comfortable Founders Hall which was paneled in exotic hardwoods and furnished with antique furniture. The Old World charm and sophistication seduced us all including a very impressed Megan C . "The building is so beautiful and I love that we were able to hang out in a room that seemed so swept away and sort of like someone important's secret office."
The scheduled private tour that included areas of Schermerhorn Symphony Center that were previously damaged by the May floods allowed us all to gain further perspective on what a gem we have in downtown Nashville! Symphony buff Stuart W is always a sucker for a "charming upper class British accent" also appreciated the tour guide's "obvious vast and deep knowledge of the symphony hall and it intracasies was superb. Listening to him describe in detail the precision and thought that went into every nuance of the building in order to truly have one of the most acoustically perfect buildings was inspirational." How's that for some culture, eh?
Peter K sipped on the the "pink and deadly cosmos that kept flowing as did the wine," while everyone nibbled on the mini delicious h'orderves of beef wellington, mushroom tarts, and jerk chicken sweet potatoes that "soaked up the drinks perfectly." Meanwhile, Ashwin M is stilling praise over the 3 butlers in 3 piece suits carrying martinis and wine! "Being the first there and attended by three butler dudes made me felt like Batman with 3 Alfreds."
Perhaps Marilee S sums the evening up the best, "Mix a martini, a few tasty morsels, some new friends and around 90 of the most talented musicians in Nashville and you have one memorable night."
Special thanks to the entire staff of the Nashville Symphony and especially to their Promotions Manager Misty Cochran who delighted us all with an incredible evening.
Until the next adventure,
