"For over twenty years the Georgian Concert Society has brought musicians specialising in the field of Early Music to Edinburgh. The GCS is dedicated to the promotion of the highest standard performance of historically-informed playing on period instruments and in period settings. The GCS has built up an audience base of over 600 people who attend at least one concert per season, and a core audience of over 100 subscribers. It regularly attracts capacity audiences at St Cecilia’s Hall, drawn mostly from the Central Belt, but with some subscribers travelling from as far away as Aberdeen, Newcastle and Dumfries.
St Cecilia’s Hall, Scotland’s oldest concert hall and home to the internationally-famous Russell Collection of Early Keyboard Instruments, provides an appropriate setting for many GCS concerts. The opportunity to use an instrument from the Collection uniquely suited to the repertoire being played is relished by the artists and their audiences alike. " Visit website for more information.
