Perfect Harmony

The Perfect Harmony campaign aims to bring together two of Scotland’s national treasures, St Mary’s Music School and the old Royal High School on Edinburgh’s Carlton Hill. We welcome your support to return one of the world's finest examples of Greek revival architecture, Thomas Hamilton's Royal High School, back to its original purpose as a school and the new home of St Mary's Music School.
