First, I should say that Knoxville is a mecca for live music of all kinds. The University of Tennessee has a completely free music series that features both students and guest artists. This is funded by the state and private donations. Then there's the Big Ears festival in March. Google it to get the details. A 4-day weekend pass is about $200. In recent years it has featured the likes of Philip Glass, Steve Reich, Terry Riley, Laurie Anderson, the Kronos Quartet, Wilco, and many other pop, rock, jazz and 'crossover' artists, known and unknown. The Symphony itself is subsidized by the city, state and federal governments. While regular subscriptions cost $500 or so, there are a limited number available at $100. There are also individual tickets at $12. We have an Americana radio station WDVX with free daily performances by local and visiting artists. It goes on and on ... so, yes, one could easily do without recorded music.
