We’re disappointed to share that Musicians Corner’s spring 2020 season has been canceled out of consideration for public health in light of COVID-19.

Since 2010, Musicians Corner has been a gathering space for locals and visitors to experience live music in Nashville’s Centennial Park. While our mission has always been to provide free public access to live music and to support local artists, our highest priority has been the safety of our attendees, artists, and staff. We are working closely with Metro Parks and will return to Centennial Park when we’re able to do so safely in accordance with CDC guidelines.

We’ve been proud to offer live music at no cost for over a decade, but now we need your support more than ever to ensure the sustainability of Musicians Corner. If you’re able, please show your support by making a donation. All donations are tax-deductible and will help ensure that Musicians Corner may continue to provide a gathering space for all Nashvillians to come together and enjoy live music. Donations may be made on our website here, or simply via Venmo at @musicianscorner

We’re extremely grateful to each of you for the support over the years. Stay safe and healthy and we look forward to being together again soon.
