The Musica sculpture on Music Row will soon be encompassed by an elaborate fountain.

Thursday the Mayor's office along with the "Fountains of Musica Foundation" announced that a synchronized water show will be added to the Nashville staple.

There will be a central fountain, an interactive water feature at Owen Bradley Park, and also a rippling fountain that mirrors the main one in the median.

The president of the foundation said the lights and water will add a pulse to the heartbeat of Music Row.

"It's a lovely design with sort of a mist and jewels of water that come up that the children can chase, and then there will be the complimentary fountain built in the median divider that cascades down towards 17th and ties everything together," Andrée LeQuire said.

Those with the foundation said they hope they will be able to complete the project by the end of 2017.

"There's going to be a gorgeous rippling fountain effect, it's more than an effect, a fountain that mirrors the major fountain on the other side," Desmond Child said. "So this is three features, and right now we're trying to raise the $10,000,000 it's going to take to do the three of them."
