Musicians from the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, including Barbara Downie (on violin, at the back of the photo) accompanied children from Maryhill Primary School in the Halls at Doors Open Day 2005 - this was the last time that live music was performed in the Halls before the major restoration works commenced.

Now, in October 2011, Barbara returned to the refurbished Halls to see how they'd changed - and make sure that the acoustics were still up to standard!

Other musicians and orchestras are also following suit, and it's fantastic to hear the building alive with music once again.
