The Royal Scottish National Orchestra’s plans to move to Glasgow Royal Concert Hall are now gathering pace with the announcement of project details.

Provided planning permission goes ahead, the £14m development will supply a ‘world-class performance space for the city of Glasgow’. Funding will be made up of a £7m Scottish Government grant, a £5m allocation from the Glasgow City Council and £2m from RSNO fundraising. Building is expected to start in autumn 2012 and be completed in summer 2014.

The ambitious development, which has been in the works since 2010, consists of a multipurpose unit, which will double as rehearsal space and 600-seater auditorium, with recording and broadcasting facilities, a learning centre and office space. The new building will connect to the east of the existing Glasgow Royal Concert Hall.

‘This project is part of the major regeneration work going on in Glasgow as a result of hosting the Commonwealth Games, which will create a lasting legacy for the people of Scotland beyond 2014,’ said culture secretary Fiona Hyslop.  The new development will enhance facilities for audiences, performers, schools, music and community groups, as well as providing a much-needed new home for the RSNO.‘
