Since its dedication in 1925, the historic War Memorial Auditorium has earned a stellar reputation with artists and audiences for its world-class acoustics; open floor and seated configurations; and charming neoclassical aesthetic. The War Memorial Auditorium, built originally to honor Tennesseans who fought and died in the First World War (1914-1918), is recognized for its distinctive architectural design. Architect Edward Dougherty achieved the American Institute of Architecture's highest honor, the Gold Medal Award, for his work, and the building's iconic statue, "Victory," which stands in the center courtyard was designed by renowned American sculptor and Tennessee native, Belle Kinney. The venue has served as home to the Nashville Symphony (1926-1980) and the Grand Ole Opry (1939-1943), and it remains a premier concert venue for Nashville.
