Nashville Music Hall Reopens After Flood

The Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville, above, which was badly damaged in a flood in May, reopened on Friday evening with a concert featuring the violinist Itzhak Perlman, The Tennessean reported. The center, completed in 2006 and the home of the Nashville Symphony Orchestra, required $40 million worth of repairs after the flood filled the basement and subbasement. Most of the cost is expected to be covered by insurance and by financing from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, according to Reuters. The rest is to be made up through a fund-raising campaign. In an acknowledgment of the flood the concert included Strauss’s “Thunder and Lightning Polka”; the music director, Giancarlo Guerrero, said he had picked it over Handel’s “Water Music.”
