St Cecilia's Hall and Museum of Music
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Originally opened in 1763, St Cecilias Hall is the oldest purpose-built concert hall in Scotland. It is the only place in the world where it's possible to hear 18th-century music in an 18th-century concert hall played on 18th-century instruments. Owned by The University of Edinburgh, it contains one of the worlds most important collections of historic musical instruments, many of which remain playable in a concert setting. The new St Cecilias Hall museum brings this collection under one roof, allowing the story of the collection as a whole to be presented.
