Nashville Symphony

Nashville, Tennessee


The Nashville Symphony chose Electrolux air-o-steam Touchline oven.

New success for the Electrolux air-o-steam Touchline oven: the flagship of the Professional oven range became one of the protagonists of a recognized Nashville Symphony, where a complete Electrolux kitchen has been recently installed and tested during the great 2010 New Year’s Eve.

One of the symbols of the highest artistic excellence in Nashville, Tennessee, US – the Nashville Symphony – chose Electrolux Professional to power the kitchen of its sumptuous restaurant ‘Arpeggio’, born to procure “the highest quality product, cooking it to perfection and presenting it in a creative way”, as Roger Keenan, Executive Chef, affirms (

In order to guarantee its guests this kind of trinomial ‘quality-perfection-creativity’, the Nashville Symphony selected some of the latest innovative professional products within the Electrolux flexible, powerful and high-efficient EM-Series Restaurant Range (8-burner range, 36’’ char-boiler, 36’’ griddle), the blast-chiller range (one 6 GN 1/1), the dynamic preparation, the DW range, and – last but not least – the revolutionary air-o-steam Touchline range (two 20 GN 2/1).

“A special occasion to test a special kitchen – projected by Steve Perdue, Director of Food & Beverage and Events, and realized after 9 months of challenging team work – was needed, and the grand re-opening of the Schermerhorn Symphony Center (the ‘orchestra’s home’) during the 2010 New Year’s Eve, months after floodwaters damaged the building, was considered the most special one”, says Mark Ortiz, Director of National Accounts Electrolux Professional Inc. “Congratulations to the whole team for this great experience to the Electrolux Professional Sales Partner Long & Littleton Inc and to Mark Kaercher, Electrolux Field Service Manager, who provided an extraordinary, motivating start-up and training for the local service agent, becoming one of the most important protagonists of this successful story.”

“I can proudly affirm,” – he continues –“ it was a real success: the Electrolux professional kitchen appliances were tested by the Nashville Symphony to serve over 2,000 people, and the cooking, refrigeration, dynamic preparation and warewashing performances surpassed any customers’ or chefs’ expectations!”

“The Electrolux EM-Series char-broiler is amazing, the heat produced for searing proteins is outstanding, even heat distribution front to back, left to right and recover time is better than any other char-broiler I have ever used”, affirms Executive Chef Roger Keenan.
