RSNO unveil new headquarters
February 7 2012
The £14m development would provide rehearsal space, a learning centre, recital hall and a 600 seat auditorium - made possible by a £7m Scottish Government grant and £5m of support from Glasgow City Council.
The RSNO will raise the £2m shortfall and finance the fit out, including the latest internet based digital technology to facilitate increased connections with schools and community groups.
Designed by a team led by GCC’s chief architect, Kerr Robertson, the scheme is expected to commence construction in autumn 2012 and complete by summer 2014 – subject to planning permission.
Leader of Glasgow City Council Gordon Matheson: “We’re delighted to be investing in one of Scotland’s premier performance spaces, which will create a centre of musical excellence for both the city and nation. These ambitious plans will help to realise new ambitions for the RSNO and enhance the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall as a world-class performance space. The physical refurbishment will also offer Glasgow Music greater flexibility in attracting both new and existing talent to the performance space.”
