Founded in 1451, Glasgow is the fourth-oldest university in the English-speaking world and is in the top 1% of the world’s universities. Over the last five centuries it fostered the talents of six Nobel laureates, one Prime Minister and Scotland’s inaugural First Minister. Albert Einstein gave a lecture on the origins of the general theory of relativity, and in 1957, it was the first in Scotland to have an electronic computer. Lord Kelvin and economist Adam Smith, to the pioneer of television John Logie Baird all walked in its hallowed cloisters and quadrants.
Glasgow University’s Concert Hall is situated in the imposing Gilbert Scott building on University Avenue. It is one of a few venues within the university, and the concert hall is used primarily for recitals and concerts from smaller ensembles, taking advantage of the University’s prized collection of early instruments, as well as a ‘Diffusion System’ for the performance of electoacoustic music. As well as music students, there are often performances from organisations such as BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Scottish Opera, Edinburgh Quartet, Dunedin Consort and Scottish Voices in the University's beautiful and historic venues.
