Where Every Family Matters

Symphony’s Family Series Kicks Off in October

A prefect way to introduce little ones to the symphony, this performance features works by Bach, Stravinsky and more.

Nashville Symphony is excited to launch the first concert in The Ann & Monroe Carell Family Trust Family Series with Halloween-themed fun for all ages. Dr. FREAKuency’s Major Monster Bash takes place October 22 at 11 a.m. at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center.

This family-friendly performance features iconic repertoire from composers including Bach, Stravinsky, Mussorgsky and more. Enjoy these instantly recognizable works alongside a colorful landscape of spooky creations, electrifying experiments and mysterious monsters!

Mad scientist Dr. FREAKuency – played by conductor Enrico Lopez-Yañez – is busy in his laboratory trying to scare off his Halloween visitors. With the help of his assistant Griegor, Dr. FREAKuency concocts his electrifying monster and sets out to thrill the trick-or-treaters. But his monster has some surprises up its sleeve and helps throw a spooktacular Halloween Bash for the entire neighborhood!

“I am incredibly excited to be bringing Dr. FREAKuency’s Major Monster Bash to Nashville this season! This show is highly interactive, goofy, and festive way for families to celebrate Halloween while being entertained by the fabulous musicians of our Nashville Symphony,” said Enrico Lopez Yañez. “The Nashville Symphony’s Family Series is a welcoming environment perfect for children young and old to laugh, sing, and wiggle around while enjoying some of the best music Music City has to offer.”

Great seats are available starting at $26 (while supplies last, additional fees apply). For more information, visit nashvillesymphony.org.
