NASHVILLE, Ga. (WTXL)--Local music surrounds the Smithsonian Institution traveling exhibit that's in Nashville, Georgia until June 29.

The town is one of only 12 in the state to be selected for the exhibit called "New Harmonies: Celebrating American Music Roots."

It's interactive and free at the community center.

"People in your community might not be fortunate enough to travel to the Smithsonian in Washington so they create these traveling exhibits then they ask the communities to apply for them," said Dawn Morrison, the economic development director for the City of Nashville. "You have to show you appreciate culture in your community and that you have a long musical heritage."

The Atlanta Symphony brass quintet is putting on a free concert in Nashville on June 21.

The town also has the Berrien County Roots Exhibit, highlighting its local music heritage. It's on display at the courthouse.
