Nashville Symphony concert slated for Centennial Park Thursday

The annual Vanderbilt Family Night with the Nashville Symphony will be at the Musicians Corner in the southwest area of Centennial Park on Thursday, June 8. Festivities begin at 5 p.m., including a special performance by Brooke Waggoner. The symphony performs at 7:30 p.m. The Musicians Corner was established in 2010 and focuses on engaging the community, promoting arts education, and supporting local artists.
