The Georgian Concert Society

The Georgian Concert Society is dedicated to the promotion of historically informed performances of the highest standard on period instruments. It organises a regular series of Early Music concerts most often held in St Cecilia's Hall, a unique oval 18th-century concert hall in the heart of Edinburgh's Old Town. The concert series features not only established Early Music performers but also exciting younger groups. Workshops and talks related to the concerts are also organised.

As St Cecilia's Hall continues to be closed for renovation, this season's concerts will again be held at St Andrew's & St George's West, 13 George Street (except the December concert which is at Canongate Kirk, 153 Canongate), Edinburgh, and now begin at 7.30pm.

Refreshments and the McAlister Matheson Music CD stall are available from 6.45pm and seats can be reserved on arrival. Concerts last approximately two hours and refreshments are on sale during the interval.

All are welcome at the concerts. School pupils and students are particularly encouraged to attend; complimentary or reduced price tickets are usually available.
