For the final weekend of the Festival, join us in the garden at Charlotte Square for a shared listening experience. Not normally open to the public, this beautiful setting is the perfect space to wander through a soundscape of classical music.
Listen to highlights recorded live during the Festival, including Beethoven’s joyful Ninth Symphony performed at the Usher Hall by the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela and the Edinburgh Festival Chorus. Bring a picnic, pull up a deckchair and enjoy the best of the 2023 classical programme.
