Concert Conversations

There's more to the Bryan Symphony Orchestra Experience than just a concert! Before each performance, We also offer a few opportunities to get better acquainted with the music and those who help produce it. 

Crossville Preview Luncheons

Wednesdays before each concert, 11am at the Palace Theater on Main Street in Crossville. Lunch is provided at a cost of $10, and attendees have the opportunity to meet with Maestro Allcott and learn about what they will hear on Symphony Sunday! Call 931-525-2633 for more information.

Pre-Concert Lecture

Prior to each concert, a TTU music professor provides a free lecture offering her take and information about the music to be performed. The lectures begin at 2 pm on Symphony Sundays, and are held in Room 223 of the Bryan Fine Arts Building. 

Symphony Socials

The Bryan Symphony Orchestra Association often hosts socials throughout the season. 


These events allow our patrons to deepen their relationships with the symphony and with other symphony patrons. Patrons will get to meet the concert guest artist(s) at the event and see a "sneak peak" of what is to be performed on the upcoming Sunday subscription concert. . 


Socials are typically held at local businesses or in the homes of members of the community. Wine and hors d'oeuvres are provided.


Want to make sure that you're on the symphony social invite list? Just call the office and ask how! 

​​RSVP's may be made by calling 931-525-2633

Post-Concert Receptions

Hosted by Sean and Michelle O'Neil, post-concert receptions are held following each performance in the lobby of the Bryan Fine Arts Building. Join us for light refreshments and the chance to discuss the concert and meet our guest artists! 

Post-Concert Dinners

After each concert, the Bryan Symphony Orchestra hosts an after-concert dinner. Dine with the maestro and concert guest-artists at one of Cookeville's premier restaurants. 

The location is announced in the newsletter and the Herald Citizen before each concert. 

Call 931-525-2633 by noon on Friday before the concert in order to make reservations.
