Nashville Symphony is excited to announce further details surrounding the Symphony Ball Late Party, an unforgettable celebration and social gathering held in conjunction with the 38th annual Symphony Ball on Saturday, December 10, 2022. Tickets for the Symphony Ball Late Party are on sale now.

The Nashville Symphony invites emerging leaders to a late-night celebration of cocktails, heavy hors d’oeuvres, and dancing! Join fellow Nashville Symphony supporters at 7:30pm for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, then experience the Lady A Harmony Award presentation and performance from general admission Founders Circle seating or the VIP Founders Box. Afterward, enjoy cocktails, socializing, and join Symphony Ball guests onstage in Laura Turner Hall to dance the night away with The Atlanta Allstars!

“We are so excited for the return of the Symphony Ball Late Party! The Symphony Ball is the Nashville Symphony’s most significant annual fundraiser and one of Music City’s only White Tie galas. Designed to cultivate the next generation of Symphony leaders and patrons, the Late Party provides young professionals an accessible opportunity to support the Symphony’s music education and community engagement programs,” said Jacob Tudor, Patron Engagement and Crescendo Club Manager. “Building on previous years’ editions of the Late Party, we are elevating the experience this year by adding a VIP seating upgrade and including new and exciting features. Come and experience an evening like none other in our gorgeous home, the Schermerhorn Symphony Center!”

Shaun Inman and Sheila Shields, chairmen of the 2022 Symphony Ball fundraiser, previously announced that the five-time GRAMMY® Award-winning group Lady A will receive the 2022 Nashville Symphony Harmony Award.

Everyone, young and old, benefits from more music in their lives.”
