Symphony Center Shows NewsChannel 5 Flooding Damage
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Many Downtown Nashville buildings suffered major flood damage including the Schermerhorn Symphony Center. NewsChannel 5 got a look inside at the damage.
More than 20 feet of water covered the heart of operations of the Schermerhorn. No room was spared in the damage, and the pianos in the storage room were barely recognizable.
Nashville Symphony President and CEO, Alan Valentine, said the damage was costly, but no word of how much just yet.
"It didn't actually get into the concert hall. It got within 5 inches of the slab which is the main floor of the concert hall," said Valentine. "One thing we know for certain is it's going to be more than we have insurance for."
The concert hall is filled with ventilation tubes to keep the moisture out.
"I have confidence that we will get this done as quickly as anyone can and get back to the business of playing great music," said Valentine.
No word of where the Nashville Symphony will play during repairs, but there have been offers to help from other halls around town.
