2022 anniversary dates associated with Music at the University of Edinburgh

Listed here are a number of anniversary years ending in 2 and 7, which are closely associated with the history of Music at the University of Edinburgh and the Reid Concerts. 
I have listed here 14 significant events, by no means a comprehensive list but I thought it was an interesting selection that was worthy of mention.  
From 1839 to 2012, ten men served as [Reid] Professors of Music and four of them feature in this anniversary list.

2021/22 is also the 300th anniversary of the birth of General John Reid.
