The Scottish Music Centre on Candleriggs is the heart of the national music industry. It contains an archive celebrating the national music industry in all forms, including representing contemporary composers and musicians. It promotes musical talent locally, nationally and internationally, comprising a wide membership helping composers and singer songwriters to be heard. Amongst its many services, it has an on-line store for sheet music and runs various youth projects to discover and nurture new talent, including the Music Plus and Hit the Road projects. The centre adjoins two major performance spaces – Glasgow City Halls and the Old Fruitmarket. The City Halls, current home of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, was built in 1841 and is Glasgow’s oldest purpose-built performance space. Its Grand Central Hall features a traditional shoebox style auditorium with world-renowned acoustics. As its name suggests, the Old Fruitmarket was a covered market until the 1970s and listed ironmongery and greengrocers’ signs are a unique feature of this 1,525 capacity modern venue.
