The Hallé Orchestra

Charles Hallé and his orchestra were invited by Professor Herbert Oakeley to come to Edinburgh from Manchester to give the annual Reid Concert every year between 1869 and 1891.   The trip to Edinburgh was often included as part of a touring schedule undertaken by the orchestra and sometimes they gave additional concerts on their visit to Edinburgh which developed into a three-day 'Reid Festival'.
