Questions about moving here? – missing Nashville

Questions about moving here?

Hello! I got a job in Nashville yesterday and I've never been to Tennessee, let alone Nashville. Just a few questions: 1) I'm a city girl and want to be close to downtown. What are good neighborhoods for under $1300 mo.? To add on to that, what are good apartments for young professionals in the area? 2) I've never even seen a tornado before but I have been through several hurricanes. What do I need to know/what are common sense tips when there is a tornado in the area? How often do they happen? 3) What are considered bad neighborhoods? 4) Is the city social? What is the general culture/people like? 5) What are things to know when trying to become a native? (Things every Nashville natives knows) 6) How is parking downtown? Is it scarce/expensive? If so, how much? 7)How's the dating scene?

*Vanderbilt Commodore Orchestra*

Hi Everyone,

If you play any orchestral instruments and are looking for opportunities to play great symphonic and orchestral repertoire, please consider joining the Vanderbilt Commodore Orchestra. It is open to everyone by audition. I mean everyone, not just students, staff, faculty, and alumni.

The past year, we've played major works, such Dvorak's New World Symphony, Bizet's Carmen, Tchaikovsky's Fifth Symphony, and Sibelius' Finlandia. We will be performing Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2 and other works this upcoming concert in December.

Our faculty adviser is a world renowned trombonist from the Vienna Philharmonic, and our music director is an accomplished pianist who has conducted major orchestras in the past.

To learn more about us, visit our website at

If you are interested in joining the orchestra, please send an email to with the subject "Prospective Member: [your name]" with what instrument you play, what you do in Nashville, and we'll add you to our list of contacts to announce auditions!

Please ask away for any questions!

I saw on r/music a few weeks ago but they didn't have THE music city yet. Looks like they added us and it's pretty cool, you just follow the playlist based on the music category you like and it's continuously updated. They could definitely use more genres on the site (country, duh) but seems like a great start.

YMCA Membership Referral – missing Nashville

YMCA Membership Referral

I'm trying to get a membership at a YMCA and see that they have a referral program where both the referring member and new member can get 20% off their membership. The Y membership prices are a bit high and there isn't really any decent gyms around me (don't want planet fitness). I know that BCBST has the FitnessBlue program which offers membership for $35 but unfortunately I don't have BCBST insurance.

Would anyone be willing to refer and get a discount for themselves? The only catch with this referral program is that the discount only works if both people have active accounts. Send me a PM if you are up for it!
