Vanderbilt Family Night with Nashville Symphony tonight at Centennial Park

Jun. 8, 2017, 5:00 AM

The annual Vanderbilt Family Night with the Nashville Symphony will be at the Musicians Corner in the southwest area of Centennial Park this evening beginning at 5 p.m., and will include a special performance by Brooke Waggoner. The symphony is slated to perform 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.

Songwriter, composer and performer Brooke Waggoner will join the Nashville Symphony at tonight’s concert in Centennial Park.

Activities at the Musicians Corner include something for all ages. The Kidsville is a destination for parents to bring their children to enjoy crafts, fitness, and an educational Musical Meet & Greet. All that fun can work up an appetite, so be sure to stop by one of the nearby food trucks and pick up something good to eat.
