Nashville Symphony's Summer with the SymphonyNashville, TN – Do you like the classics? AARP does. Whether you’re talking the classic American band “Earth Wind & Fire,” the classy Broadway and TV star Idina Menzel or the classical sounds of Beethoven, we’ve got you covered in June. AARP and the Nashville Symphony are teaming up for the first time for our “Summer with the Symphony!”

AARP members can receive $5.00 off any ticket for Menzel’s special performance with the Nashville Symphony Orchestra at the Woods Amphitheater at Fontanel on June 16th. The Tony Award-winning star of Broadway’s Wicked and television’s hit show Glee will perform a diverse mix of classic pop and musical theater favorites, along with a fresh spin on some contemporary hits.

Would you rather groove along with Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Earth Wind & Fire? AARP members can get the same $5 discount for tickets to their show with the Symphony Orchestra – also at the Woods Amphitheater at Fontanel – on June 23rd.

Or, if your tastes run toward classical music, you will be delighted to hear that “Beethoven is BACK!” AARP members can get $5.00 off the purchase of tickets to any of three shows featuring the music of the master composer at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center (June 15th, 22nd or 30th).

You can order your tickets online at the Nashville Symphony web site, order by phone at 615.687.6400 or get tickets at the box office, while supplies last. Use the promo code AARP.
