The ELISA spring programme of visits is going well and proving very popular.  Most visits have ‘sold out’ although there are a few tickets for the visit to Boroughmuir High School still available.  We now have wait-lists in operation for all events so please sign up to the wait-list and if a place becomes available you will be contacted automatically via Eventbrite.  Also please remember if you do book a place on one of our visits but can’t attend or have a change of plans, it’s easy to cancel your ticket through Eventbrite.

The latest news is that we have a visit to St Cecilia’s Hall planned for Wednesday, 13 June 2018 from 15:00 to 16:30.

St Cecilia’s Hall is home to one of the most important historic musical instrument collections anywhere in the world.  It is Scotland’s oldest purpose-built concert hall. Originally built by the Edinburgh Musical Society in 1762, the Georgian venue is a real hidden gem, tucked away in the heart of Edinburgh’s Cowgate.
Having undergone a £6.5 million renovation St Cecilia’s Hall and Music Museum is now the Edinburgh University’s first visitor attraction and a fantastic addition to Edinburgh’s offer of museums and event venues.
St Cecilia’s Hall comprises of a Concert Room, hosting a range of concerts and public events, and a Music Museum, which is open to the public and brings together the University’s historic collection of musical instruments for the first time.
Dr Sarah Deters will give a tour of the museum and collections.
