Perth Concert Hall  (16 miles) opened in June 2005, provides for all the people of Perthshire and beyond, whether into Elgar or Elvis, Greek tragedy or stand-up comedy.  So 'music' covers everything from classical concerts to rock, pop, world, traditional, country and jazz.  'Drama' covers classics, new writing, comedy, panto and children's shows.  Also, light entertainment - clairvoyants, tribute bands and comedy nights.  There can be jamming sessions in the theatre bar, jazz in the studio theatre, lunchtime lights in the concert hall's studio, but the full-on orchestras with 70 musicians and two pianos appear in the main auditorium - they would not fit anywhere else.
