The Usher Hall is the city's key venue for visiting national and international orchestras and has been the main venue for the Edinburgh International Festival since 1947. The beautiful Beaux Arts concert hall was completed in 1914 and remains one of Edinburgh 's architectural gems. The much praised acoustics make it one of the best concert halls in Europe with many of the world's finest musicians performing here. It also contains an extremely fine pipe organ which is regularly played in concerts and recitals. Today the Usher Hall is a centre of excellence embracing the widest range of music and events, including rock, pop, jazz, world, blues, comedy, talks, school concerts, conferences, sponsorship events, ceremonies, lectures and recording sessions."
