About City Halls
No matter which concert you choose, from orchestral to the more intimate recital, the sound in our Grand Hall will be breathtaking. The traditional shoebox style auditorium is renowned throughout the world for having some of the finest acoustics.
Our elegant and spectacular Hall provides the focus for Glasgow's Centre for Music. Dating from as far back as 1841, it is the city's oldest, but most well loved, purpose built performance and meeting space.
This exciting music complex also houses top class rehearsal, recording, broadcasting and webcasting facilities. As a hub of creativity, a jam-packed programme of public workshops and classes has already benefited everyone from babies, toddlers and school groups to amateur and professional musicians.
What a pleasure to make recordings in this Hall! Not only are the acoustics marvellous for concerts but they are particularly good for recording. Thank you also for the services which the new hall provides so freely!

Our resident orchestra, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, adds to the hive of activity, as we host its continuing series of events and performances. City Halls also provides a regular Glasgow performance base for the Scottish Chamber Orchestra.
Add to this the Scottish Music Centre, a one-stop shop with information for anyone interested in music, and you should look no further for all your musical needs!
The new City Hall has proved an acoustic winner. I've now lost count of critical colleagues from London papers who have been gaga at the quality of sound in the place.
