The state of the arts in Nashville including a look at upcoming exhibits & performances

Welcome to another new year and another season rich with concerts, stage productions, art exhibits and plenty more. There’s little question that, over the past decade, the city’s classical music, dance, theater and visual arts offerings have improved dramatically. In the following pages, Nashville Scene critics Martin Brady, Marcel Smith and Angela Wibking take a look at developments in the last year—and a look at what lies ahead. The forecast is generally promising, if also marked with the setbacks that are naturally a part of the performing and visual arts worlds, so often subject to sobering fiscal realities. And yet, judging from the annotated calendars of upcoming events included here, local audiences have much to anticipate in the coming months—touring shows, homegrown talent and a shiny new venue, the Blair School’s Martha Rivers Ingram Center for the Performing Arts, that will surely help raise the level of arts activity in Nashville.
