St Cecilia’s Hall and Edinburgh University Art Collection
Thursday 08 November 2018

The autumn visit will take us to two interesting, yet diverse, cultural centres of Edinburgh University. In the morning we will visit St Cecilia’s Hall, the oldest purpose-built concert hall in Scotland - a Georgian building designed by Robert Mylne for the Edinburgh Musical Society in 1763, which underwent refurbishment in recent years. The building brings together the University’s historic and unparalleled collection of musical instruments from across the globe, including its world-famous harpsichords. The collection is a Recognised Collection of National Significance to Scotland and if we are lucky we may hear some of the instruments being played during our visit.
