The TENNESSEAN is reporting TODAY (6/23) that the cost to repair flood damage at the SCHERMERHORN SYMPHONY CENTER in NASHVILLE has risen to an estimated $42 million.
The hall is not expected to re-open until JANUARY. There were 5.25 million gallons of water that flooded into the building during MAY 1st-2nd, with water rising up to 24 feet, just four inches short of reaching the concert hall.
Even with insurance covering a portion of the cost, the symphony will be $3 to $10 million short. Click here to read more. For the latest updates on the flood recovery at the hall, visit www.nashvillesymphony.org.
