Making Tracks - Edinburgh
Time & Location
About the Event
"The Queen's Hall started off life as the church of Newington and St Leonard's in 1823 and continued as a place of worship until 1976. The closure coincided with a search by the Scottish Baroque Ensemble (now the Scottish Ensemble), the Scottish Philharmonic Singers and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra for performance and rehearsal premises. An appeal was launched in 1977 and after raising £850,000 to convert the church to a concert hall, The Queen's Hall was officially opened by HM Queen Elizabeth II on 6 July 1979. Since then the building has been home to a different form of worship - to great music performed by world-class artists.
Part of the Making Tracks 2019 tour, this concert will feature solo and collaborative performances from each of Making Tracks’ eight 2019 Fellows." Making Tracks website.
