Nashville Symphony conductor dies

Nashville Symphony conductor dies: Sad news. Nashville Symphony conductor Kenneth Schermerhorn died this morning. I’ll link to stories as they become available.

Announcement on Symphony’s website:

An icon of the
performing arts in Nashville whose influence will be felt for
generations, Maestro Schermerhorn personified the city’s artistic
accomplishments and aspirations. Like the city he adopted, the Maestro
was a marvelous mixture of bravado and kindness, tradition and
openness, seriousness and laughter. Like the world-class concert hall
named in his honor that is now rising in downtown Nashville,
Schermerhorn Symphony Center, he accepted no compromises in an
unrelenting dedication to excellence.
