3 LEADERSHIP LEADERSHIP LETTER FROM BOARD CHAIR 2013/14 BOARD OF DIRECTORS As my term as Board Chair comes to a close, I look back over the past two years and am overwhelmed by the extraordinary support that the Middle Tennessee community has shown for the. This institution may have faced significant challenges over the past few years, but one thing is absolutely clear to me: The will continue to thrive thanks to the many patrons and donors who believe in the enduring power of our artistic and educational mission. The remarkable growth of our orchestra and the construction of Schermerhorn Symphony Center could not have happened without the extraordinarily generous donors who have provided a solid foundation for our institution, the bank lenders who financed our building, and the patrons who share their excitement and applause at every concert. Those very same parties are the reason we are still here today, and the reason we will continue to serve our community for decades to come. At the heart of everything we do, of course, are the musicians of the Nashville Symphony. These remarkable individuals made sacrifices over the past year that enabled the organization to control its expenses while at the very same time deepening its commitment to the entire Middle Tennessee region. Whether giving stunning performances of Saint-Saëns Symphony No. 3 to a packed concert hall or offering a free concert to students at I.T. Creswell Middle Arts Magnet School, our musicians have inspired countless children and adults through their artistry and love for music. On behalf of the entire Board of Directors, I would also like to acknowledge the staff, who along with our musicians have worked tirelessly to provide a strong, sustainable foundation for our organization. Your perseverance resulted in a banner year for the and promises many great things to come. Lastly and most importantly, I want to say thank you to the people who matter most: our patrons, our donors and our volunteers. You have lifted the up with your love, joy and support. You ve provided for our success by purchasing tickets, making contributions and giving your time and talents to ensure that future generations of Tennesseans have the opportunity to experience the thrill of live orchestral music. I m so very grateful to have been entrusted with the care and stewardship of this orchestra, and I know that with your continuing support, the Nashville Symphony will have a very bright future.

4 LEADERSHIP FROM THE PRESIDENT & CEO During my 16 years with the, I ve experienced some amazing highlights, including two trips to Carnegie Hall, the opening of Schermerhorn Symphony Center and multiple GRAMMY Awards for our recordings. It s hard to imagine greater achievements, but I can truly say that I am every bit as proud of the work that our remarkable musicians and staff accomplished during the 2013/14 season. Our organization has experienced significant challenges over the past few years, but we have emerged stronger than ever, as so clearly indicated by the milestones we marked during this past season. We set an all-time ticket sales record for our organization, with an astounding $8.6 million in revenue. Just as significantly, we saw growth in our concert attendance across the board, with more people coming to Schermerhorn Symphony Center to enjoy music of all genres foremost among those the great orchestral repertoire. But performing timeless works by Beethoven, Brahms and Mozart is only part of what we do at the Nashville Symphony. As Music City s resident orchestra, we are every bit as committed to advancing the art of classical music, making it relevant to our own community and keeping it thriving in the 21st century. During 2013/14, we had several exciting opportunities to fulfill this mission, most notably with the commissioning and world premiere of a piano concerto by pop star and Nashville Symphony board member Ben Folds. This project speaks to the very heart of our identity ready to take creative risks and connect with new audiences. Along with this project, which was recorded for future release, the stayed busy with a number of other recording projects, releasing new works by Béla Fleck, whose banjo concerto The Impostor was commissioned and premiered by the Symphony; Richard Danielpour, whose moving A Woman s Life pays tribute to the late Maya Angelou; and Roberto Sierra, whose Sinfonía No. 4 infuses orchestral music with lively Latin rhythms. Over the ensuing year, we ll see even more of our recordings reach the public, as forthcoming releases highlight works by Stephen Paulus and Joan Tower, two of the most important voices in orchestral music today. Amid so many new and exciting projects, we didn t forget our roots, as we celebrated the 50th anniversary of our Chorus. This ensemble has truly blossomed, and its remarkable quality was recognized this year with an invitation to perform at the prestigious Cincinnati May Festival. Our Nashville Symphony musicians the heart of our organization performed at the top of their game as well, fulfilling the promise of Schermerhorn Symphony Center as a world-class venue for a truly outstanding orchestra. And their hard work wasn t limited just to the concert stage, as they went out into the community and engaged students and music lovers of all ages and backgrounds, offering a staggering 150,000 hours of free programming. We have many reasons to be proud of our work over the last year, but one in particular stands out: The remarkable support that you have shown your Nashville Symphony. In addition to breaking ticket sales records, we raised more money than ever in 2013/14 a total of $6 million, or 71 percent more than the previous year s fundraising total. As we strive for even greater artistic heights in the year ahead, and as we seek to reach even more people in our community, we will never forget that everything we do is possible because of you. Thank you for believing in the. Alan D. Valentine ARTISTIC VISION STATEMENT Achieve recognized artistic excellence in the performance and presentation of the highest quality music, with a focus on the creation, promotion and preservation of a distinctly American repertoire /14 Annual Report 5

5 ARTISTIC FROM THE MAESTRO I am deeply honored to work with the musicians of the, who show tremendous skill, sensitivity and creativity in each and every performance they give. We are so lucky to have an orchestra that can play anything that winds up on their music stands, whether it s a beloved piece of repertoire by Beethoven or Mozart, an expansive work by Mahler or Strauss, or a technically challenging piece of new music that will receive its first-ever performance right here on our own stage. I feel every bit as privileged to perform for our audiences at Schermerhorn Symphony Center and across Middle Tennessee. You embrace everything we do with genuine enthusiasm, anticipation and excitement. The is YOUR symphony, and we wouldn t be able to achieve our high level of performance without your support. NASHVILLE SYMPHONY S 2013/14 SEASON Much like Nashville itself, Music City s resident orchestra celebrates both tradition and innovation. At this intersection of cultural heritage and cutting-edge creativity, the preserves, promotes and expands the American orchestral repertoire while paying homage to the masters. During the 2013/14 season, Middle Tennessee audiences enjoyed some of the most powerful and lasting music in the repertoire, including performances of Prokofiev s Piano Concerto No. 3, Beethoven s Symphony No. 3, Stravinsky s Firebird Suite, Mahler s Symphony No. 7 and Vaughan Williams epic Symphony No. 1 A Sea Symphony. True to its mission of championing this country s greatest composers, the orchestra also explored the full range of American music in its Aegis Sciences Classical Series, with classics by Barber, Bernstein and Copland, crowd-pleasing pieces by John Williams and John Adams, and recent works by Joan Tower, Stephen Paulus and Nashville-based pop star Ben Folds. (For more about the world LEADERSHIP premiere of Folds Piano Concerto, see the article on the next page.) Throughout the year, a star-studded lineup of soloists visited Schermerhorn Symphony Center to perform everything from classical to pop to jazz, with highlights including violinist Itzhak Perlman, saxophonist Branford Marsalis and pianist Jeremy Denk. World-renowned soprano Renée Fleming joined the in September to celebrate the opening of the season, entrancing the audience with her renditions of Gershwin s Summertime and Leonard Cohen s Hallelujah. The Nashville Symphony Chorus brought the Classical Series to a close in May with breathtaking performances of Brahms A German Requiem. Aside from performing live the music I love, the NSO is exposing me to dynamite new music I would not otherwise get to hear. Barbara Sullivan (Nashville, TN) FROM THE NASHVILLE SYMPHONY S TWITTER I love it when a repertoire caters to the young and young at heart! Patron Appreciation concert last nite The jewel in Nashville s crown SO lucky 2 The entire Watauga Arts Academy is enjoying the #wizardofoz with live Great show! Thanks for the #SymphonyUnderTheStars. Just one more reason Thanks for a wonderful evening, an awesome season & the countless musical memories over the past 3 years! My heart is full! THE BEN FOLDS PROJECT Nashville is unique among American cities for its wealth of musical talent, and the Nashville Symphony loves to collaborate with its hometown artists, from bassist Edgar Meyer to banjoist Béla Fleck to composer Conni Ellisor. During the 2013/14 season, the teamed with Nashville Ballet and Minnesota Orchestra to commission a new Concerto for Piano and Orchestra by pop star Ben Folds. A strong supporter and current Symphony board member, Folds joined the orchestra on March 13-15, 2014, to give the world premiere performances of his new composition, which he will perform with more than 30 orchestras across the United States and around the world over the next year. In addition to three sold-out evening performances, Folds and the orchestra also played the piece for hundreds of local high school students as part of the Nashville Symphony s free Young People s Concerts. Having played in school bands during his youth, Folds knows firsthand just how life-changing music education can be : We see so much emphasis on what s divisive, how things are unable to work together. What a difference it makes when you see people working in concert with this incredible musical tool that has hundreds of years of wisdom behind it. Following the performances at Schermerhorn Symphony Center, the orchestra and Folds collaborated with the Nashville Ballet in May to perform the new concerto at TPAC, with original choreography by Nashville Ballet Artistic Director & CEO Paul Vasterling.

6 ARTISTIC ARTISTIC NASHVILLE SYMPHONY CHORUS RECORDINGS As part of its quest to share its music with listeners both near and far, the has maintained an active recording schedule over the past 15 years. The 2013/14 season was especially busy for the Nashville Symphony, kicking off in August with the Decca release of banjoist Béla Fleck s The Impostor, which received its world premiere two years earlier at Schermerhorn Symphony Center. This pioneering concerto for solo banjo has enjoyed considerable attention and acclaim, with the online classical music publication Alto Riot calling it Fleck s most ambitious effort on an unimaginable scale a stirring testament to his undeniable gift of storytelling without speaking a word. In the fall, Naxos released two more recordings, both highlighting composers well known to Nashville audiences. Richard Danielpour s Darkness in the Ancient Valley features two remarkable soprano performances with the orchestra one by Hila Plitmann on the title track, the other by Angela Brown on A Woman s Life, an adaptation of texts by the poet Maya Angelou. Released just two months later, Roberto Sierra s Sinfonía No. 4 is a kaleidoscopic survey of the Puerto Rican-born composer s work, which infuses classical forms with Latin rhythms and flavors. Even as these recordings were hitting the market, the orchestra was already working on three more projects, starting with Stephen Paulus Grand Concerto for Organ and Orchestra. This large-scale work completes a recording project begun the previous year with two additional Paulus compositions, Veil of Tears and Three Places of Enlightenment. Dedicated to the composer, who suffered a stroke during the production, this recording is set for release in fall 2014 and will feature four of the orchestra s principal string players: Jun Iwasaki, Carolyn Wann Bailey, Daniel Reinker and Anthony LaMarchina. The launched its first-ever Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for another forthcoming release, this one by Joan Tower. More than 80 people responded and helped us reach our goal of $15,500. Buoyed by this support, the orchestra recorded a short work, Chamber Dance, in October, then finished the album a month later with recordings of Stroke and Tower s Violin Concerto, the latter featuring Cho-Liang Lin. Thanks to our generous project backers, this recording will be released in spring The wrapped up its active recording season in May with a trip to historic RCA Studio A on Nashville s legendary Music Row, where the orchestra teamed up with pop artist Ben Folds to record his new Concerto for Piano. As with Fleck s banjo concerto, this forthcoming release perfectly embodies the orchestra s commitment to reaching new audiences with adventurous, genre-defying collaborations. The sound is timeless; the experience of hearing live music with perfect acoustics is priceless. Frank Harrell (Brentwood, Amazing night Brahms Requiem was great to celebrate 50 yrs with the Chorus FROM THE CHORUS DIRECTOR It has been a wonderful year getting to know the many singers of the Chorus. Their attention, focus and passion for great choral music are an integral part of this organization. These volunteers, with their countless hours of preparation and dedication, offer an incredible gift to this community and allow the great choral orchestral masterpieces to come to life. As I move forward leading the Chorus, it is my hope to create and lead a robust choral education initiative that can complement the immense work that the orchestra already does to promote music education. We have already sowed some of the seeds for this initiative in this 50th anniversary season, and I am looking forward to seeing how this aspect of our work grows in the coming years. The 2013/14 concert season was truly a banner year for the Nashville Symphony Chorus. Formed in 1963 to perform Handel s Messiah, the Chorus celebrated its 50th anniversary this year. The all-volunteer vocal ensemble also welcomed Kelly Corcoran as its new Chorus Director and saw its membership swell from 160 singers to 200. The Chorus kicked off its concert season in October with two aquatic-themed pieces: Beethoven s rarely performed Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage and Ralph Vaughan Williams Symphony No. 1 A Sea Symphony. Following its annual performances of Handel s Messiah in December, the Chorus welcomed the new year with a busy schedule, starting with its March choral concert, Voices of Spring. Two months later, the ensemble traveled to Ohio to perform at the prestigious Cincinnati May Festival, joining the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and the Cincinnati May Festival Chorus in a performance of Mahler s Symphony No. 8, Symphony of a Thousand. The Chorus closed its 50th anniversary season with three full houses in attendance for performances of Bernstein s Chichester Psalms and Brahms A German Requiem. At the concert, bass singer Richard Hatfield was presented with an official proclamation from the Tennessee General Assembly in recognition of his 50-year membership with the Chorus. Here s to another 50 years of great music from the Chorus! /14 Annual Report Kelly Corcoran 9

16 FINANCES FINANCES LETTER FROM CFO NASHVILLE SYMPHONY ASSOCIATION STATEMENTS OF FINANCIAL POSITION JULY 31, 2013 USES & SOURCES OF FUNDS What a difference a year makes! During 2013, Schermerhorn Symphony Center was on the brink of foreclosure and the future of our extraordinary was uncertain. Today, we are stronger and better positioned to fulfill our mission of engaging the community with excellent performances and education programs, both in the concert hall and throughout the region. Lots of important events occurred last year. Three of the largest were: WE RESTRUCTURED OUR DEBT Our banks agreed to accept a $35 million cash payment and a $20 million mortgage note payable to resolve all our outstanding bond debt and our related interest rate swap liability. We recorded a $39 million non-cash gain on the transaction and significantly reduced our future debt service requirements. WE CHANGED OUR OPERATING MODEL In addition to restructuring our debt, we restructured our operations. We outsourced food services, expanded our concert offerings and cut our operating budget. We expect 2014 to show the benefit of these moves and are on track to reduce annual operating expenses, including debt service, by about $10 million. WE RECEIVED A CLEAN AUDIT OPINION The prior year audit report expressed substantial doubt about the Association s ability to continue as a going concern. The 2013 report has no such qualification. This is largely because we restructured our debt and changed our operating model. Thank you for your interest in, and commitment to, the. We hold ourselves to a high standard of accountability, and throughout this process have remained focused on preserving and advancing our missionrelated programs and activities to be good stewards of your investment. We look forward to partnering with you to bring excellent music and education to Middle Tennessee for years to come.
