The Stevenson Hall is our main concert performance venue, it seats 355 people and is equipped with a full lighting rig and high specification sound system. The hall is finished in natural wood and houses a beautiful, full pipe organ.
Performances in the Stevenson Hall have included our symphony orchestra playing Shostakovich’s Fourth Symphony, Mahler’s Sixth and Seventh symphonies and Richard Strauss’s Ein Heldenleben.
We regularly host masterclasses from our International Fellows such as The Brodsky Quartet, Stephen Osborne and Donald Runnicles, and performances from our Musiclab ensemble. The Stevenson Hall is fully equipped for broadcast recording and frequently hosts performances for BBC Radio 3.
The Stevenson Hall is named after Sir Daniel Stevenson, an ex-Lord Provost of Glasgow. He was instrumental in our development as the Glasgow Athenaeum.
